All Love, No Lonely
Celebrating 70 years in Seattle and 50 years on Mercer Island
In 2019, the Stroum Jewish Community Center celebrates two big milestones: our 50th anniversary on Mercer Island and 70th in greater Seattle. The SJCC remains a place where friendships form, traditions thrive, and community strengthens with every new visitor we greet and with every familiar face we welcome back.
This year, we recommit to creating experiences that unify us, celebrate Jewish values, and assure that we all feel love, and not lonely, in and around the SJCC.
We hope you’ll help us #SpringInto50 as we celebrate a year of #AllLoveNoLonely — join us!
Follow us on social media to stay up-to-date on everything happening at the J. And don’t forget to tag us in your posts, so we can see how you’re celebrating with us!
All Love, No Lonely
Whether you are 2 or 92 years old, you belong at the SJCC. Here we embrace everyone for who they are and what they bring to the world. Here you see the familiar faces of people you’ve known for years and friends you have yet to meet. Here you are seen, welcomed, and appreciated. Here you feel love, not lonely.
Guided by Jewish values, we offer programs that empower us to be better and unify us as a community. The team at the J works hard to create an environment where:
- Visitors feel welcome
- Joy overcomes fear
- Curiosity is authentic
- Friendships deepen
- Discourse is respectful
- Jewish culture is unifying
- A sense of belonging is strong
It’s through belonging and connection that we get to know one another, celebrate life, and care for each other. This is increasingly vital as we live in a world where people are often more connected to devices than other people.
More than 800 people came through our doors to celebrate together! Check out the photos.
