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.

Our unprecedented level of inclusiveness embraces the true diversity of our community. Jewish or not, affiliated or not, young or just young at heart. Our life enriching programming is what keeps us all connected. Everyone belongs to the J!
