Youth & Family

The Kaplen JCC on the Palisades is your home for family fun and children’s enrichment. We are here for you from the start of your parenting journey to the moment your child is ready to fly from their nest.

Our activities range from baby and caregiver classes, to afterschool programs, to weekend family events. Immersing in the Kaplen JCC means shaping your children’s identities with the most positive Jewish values.

We pride ourselves in creating an encouraging environment for individuals to build confidence and flourish under the guidance of the highest quality instructors. Beyond the skills gained, you become part of a true family where you form friendships and memories that last a lifetime.

My kids look forward to different activities every day of the week at the JCC! My son does Tae Kwon Do afterschool, and the whole family takes swims classes on Sundays. My daughter explored three different instruments before falling in love with the violin. The J offers everything we need to help our kids lean into their interests, and with so many friends there, it’s our family’s whole social life!
