About Us

Our Mission

The JCC of Northern NJ creates opportunities for individuals in our community to connect, grow and learn in an ever-changing Jewish environment.


Guided and inspired by Jewish values, the JCC of Northern NJ strives to engage, enrich, and strengthen the lives of all who we serve throughout our community.

Our History

The JCC of Northern NJ touches the lives of hundreds of participants through its core programs and communal service initiatives. Founded as a non-profit, voluntary organization in Hackensack in 1924, the JCC helped a generation of Jewish immigrants assimilate into American society. The organization promoted fellowship and community spirit through its array of educational, recreational, social, and cultural programming for individuals and families. That mission continues to this day through outreach, connection, and engagement guided and inspired by Jewish values.
