The JCC’s last major renovation was in 1997. Eighteen years later, New Orleans is benefiting from our fitness and aquatics areas more than ever. Our waiting list for our acclaimed nursery school is long, and the need for our Alzheimer’s program remains critical. It is time to renew, rebuild, and reinvest. We stand ready to ensure that the New Orleans JCC continues to play a central role in building a welcoming, diverse, and thriving community that enriches the lives of all New Orleans’ families—now, and for generations to come. The time is here, the J is moving forward, and it can’t happen without YOU!
We love to celebrate here at the JCC, and we also look for any opportunity to be creative. Join us for a coloring break in The Nosh of the Uptown JCC for National Coloring Book Day on August 2.

We’d love to see your artwork, so be sure to tag us and use hashtag #nojcc on social media!...
