our inclusive

We provide opportunities to people of all ages and abilities, races and backgrounds, and genders and sexual orientations for inclusion in all programs. Our inclusion philosophy is woven into the fabric of each and every department at the J. We work to build community where everyone acknowledges and respects people’s differences, while celebrating each individual’s inherent uniqueness.

Generous. Open hearted. Noble. Caring.

In Hebrew, those qualities can be summed up in one beautiful word – NADIV. We welcome our Nadiv Circle donors, who make gifts of $10,000+ annually to the Minnesota JCC. Your generosity supports our unique mission and the thousands of people we serve, engage and uplift each year.
