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.

Jewish & Israeli Life

Welcome home!

Israeli flags.

Your home away from home, the Israeli and Jewish Community at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades is in the heart of Bergen County in New Jersey.

Together we gather to discuss life’s big questions, finding insight about today’s challenges, celebrating the seasons and holidays, and each other in community. That’s Jewish and Israeli Life at the JCC. We welcome your partnership and participation in exploring and expressing the myriad ways that Jewish and Israeli culture connect and contributes to the vibrancy of the JCC and Bergen County.

New to the community?

We are here to help and guide you. Please contact us for a special welcome package.
