Jewish Newcomers

The Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans offers a Jewish Newcomers Program to assist in the transition to the Greater New Orleans area. The program offers a variety of membership benefits to introduce newcomers to the Jewish community, including a discounted membership to the New Orleans JCC. 

The JCC waives the $125 joining fee and offers 50% off first-year dues to Jewish Newcomers. To receive this benefit, apply for the Jewish Newcomers Program and bring the JCC voucher when you come to join.
