Jewish Life
JCC Harlem is proud to be a hub of Jewish life in Harlem. We offer diverse opportunities for people to engage Jewishly within and beyond our four walls.

Reflective, Connective Jewish Community in Harlem

Recognizing that there isn’t one way to do or be Jewish, we strive to keep our doors and minds open to Jewish programming and ideas of all denominations, cultures, identities, and philosophies. We offer experiences that celebrate Jewish traditions, values, and holidays in an inclusive and modern way, while also creating spaces for our varied group of neighborhood and community partners to demonstrate their own unique vision and priorities for urban life.


Every year, we are proud to offer financially and religiously accessible, family-friendly High Holiday services. Regardless of your level of observance, denominational knowledge, or religious background, we hope that you will find our services to be a meaningful and engaging experience.
