About The J

Welcome to the Samuel and Althea Stroum
Jewish Community Center of Greater Seattle.

Founded in 1949, the Stroum JCC is dedicated to the enrichment of life for the Jewish and general community in the greater Seattle area.

Located on Mercer Island, the J offers a variety of programs and activities for everyone from newborns to seniors. The J is home to an Early Childhood School, a newly remodeled state-of-the-art auditorium, an upgraded Fitness Center, an indoor pool, and more.

We host a variety of parenting classes and weekly Tot Shabbat programs for our youngest members and their parents. School-aged kids enjoy our Kidstown before and after school care, take sports and arts classes, spend their summers at SJCC Summer Camp, and grow up to become camp counselors and lifeguards. Adults join sports leagues, attend events in the Kesher Community Garden, swim laps in our pool, or work out in our Fitness Center. Seniors learn to play bridge, join fitness classes, and attend our popular arts events.

Throughout the year, the J hosts and partners with community organizations to sponsor holiday celebrations, from our community Hanukkah party to our Purim Carnival, and more.
