Jewish Community Center

The Jewish Community Center's programs are all housed at the JCC- your Jewish community center. Get involved! Join us for a class, exercise your mind and body, enjoy a cultural event or holiday program or become a volunteer.


The JCC welcomes everyone regardless of age, race, religion, national origin or special need. Your continued support assures us that many important initiatives will continue to be successful here in the Wyoming Valley. Our plans for the future are exciting and diverse. We will remain strong and committed to our members as we continue to assess the needs of our community.
