Mask Up! In response to Governor Murphy reinstating a public health emergency, we would like to remind all members and guests of our mask policy. Masks are required for ALL entering the JCC, in common areas and hallways regardless of vaccination status. Please come with your own mask, adjust over nose and mouth prior to entering our building. We appreciate your support in keeping our community safe.

Planned Giving

The JCC is the very heart of our community.

It is the center that keeps us together and helps us grow.

Make a Gift for Tomorrow

A legacy gift is a tax-smart gift that can help ensure our children and grandchildren will enjoy a flourishing Jewish community and a place to celebrate our heritage and traditions. Together, we can support programs, which foster a vibrant and dynamic JCC and help families forge their Jewish journey.

Everyone has a unique family and financial situation. Your legacy gift can be designed to match your circumstances and interests. Legacy gifts can cost nothing during your lifetime, and can also provide a monthly income for life in return for your gift.

Legacy gift options include:

  • A bequest in a will or trust
  • An individual or family endowment gift, using cash or appreciated stock
  • A life insurance policy
  • An IRA or pension plan
  • A charitable remainder trust
