Membership Freeze

We offer the option to freeze your membership for up to 3 months once per year for personal reasons, or more than 3 months for medical reasons with a physician's note. You must provide notice (written or email) by the 10th of the month you wish to freeze. During the freeze period, you will be assessed a $10 freeze fee for each month your membership is frozen. At the conclusion of the freeze period, your membership will automatically renew and you will be drafted your full membership fee. When requesting a freeze, please indicate how many months you wish to freeze your membership.

Cancellation of Membership

Membership is a minimum of one month plus 30 days to cancel. To cancel a membership, provide 30 days notice (written or email) prior to the 15th of the month you wish to cancel. For example, if you want to cancel as of June 15, written cancellation must be received by May 15. If you wish to rejoin in the future, you will be required to pay a $75 rejoin fee.


Unless you are an annual member, dues are drafted automatically on the 15th of each month.

JCC Seniors Benefit from City's Meal Assistance Program

New Orleans JCC Campers March for Kindness

Uptown summer campers demonstrated the importance of being kind and loving others during the 4th annual Kindness March.


Celebrating Freedom and Serving Others

Independence Day, so often equated with fireworks, cookouts, and summer sales also has an important and meaningful history. It not only commemorates the birth of our country, but also celebrates the freedoms that have enabled the Jewish community in the U.S. to thrive.


A Celebration of Resilience, Resistance and Hope

Join the New Orleans JCC and 60 other museums and cultural institutions around the world for We Are Here: A Celebration of Resilience, Resistance, and Hope on Sunday, June 14 at 1:00 PM CST.
