Your Support is Vital

When you donate to Jewish Long Beach & Alpert JCC, you are changing lives. Your gift will provide support in three critical areas:

  • Programs that improve people’s lives Jewishly, with a focus on ECE, Youth & Family Engagement, Senior Wellness and Jewish Life & Culture.
  • Community building, Jewish advocacy, and leadership development, through partnerships with local Jewish and other community agencies to foster collaboration, empower community leaders, inspire the next generation, and build bridges of understanding.
  • Philanthropy that provides support for local Jewish organizations and Jewish communal needs locally, nationally, in Israel and around the world
