For nearly 100 years, the JCC Denver’s mission has been to build a community, rooted in Jewish values, where everyone feels like they belong. Our center was founded in 1922 as a place of refuge for the Jewish people of Denver, where they could safely gather under one roof to celebrate the cultural aspect of being Jewish–the ish. Since then, the JCC Denver has evolved into something more–more than a single building, more than just a gathering place, and more than our individual departments and programs. Today, the JCC Denver is a community that extends beyond the walls in which we do business. We open our literal and figurative doors to anyone who wants to celebrate life and be a part of something more. The JCC Denver has been, and always will be, a place where you belong.
