Board of Directors

The New Orleans Jewish Community Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the Greater New Orleans Jewish community, their friends, and families.

Meet the Dogs of November Dog Yoga

CHOOSE KIND - World Kindness Day at the JCC

World Kindness Day is a day to promote being kind, to share random acts of kindness, and to educate those around us about the positive effects of kindness on our whole world. Learn some fun ways to spread kindness from Children's Program Manager Brigid MacArthur-Thompson.


Take Your Workout to the Water

Now at the JCC, we offer pool workout classes every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. We added more times for current favorites like Aqua Fit and even expanded our offerings to include new aquatics classes.


Thanksgiving-Week Workouts

Your JCC fitness team is here to help you earn and burn that extra helping of your favorite aunt’s sweet potato casserole. Join us at either location for our annual Turkey Earner and Turkey Burner workouts.
