About

There's something about this place.

You’ll feel it when you’re working out in our state-of-the-art fitness center. When you’re sweating through a Pilates class. When you enroll your kids in our NAEYC-accredited preschool. And when you show up to your first class of Chocolate Hebrew.

The J is a special place. Founded on Jewish values, the JCC of Dallas empowers people of all ages and religious backgrounds to pursue wellness in mind, body and spirit.

We have programs for everyone – families and singles, children and teens, adults and seniors. Within our walls, members gather together to meet, play, learn, celebrate and be part of the community.
