Welcome to the A message from Randy Colman, Executive Director With another engaging and exciting season well underway, it’s clear to me that our Levis JCC continues to be “the” place to be for top quality programming in our community. Whether you are here for our beloved preschool and camp programs, our rich and exciting cultural arts offerings, if you’re at our J for health & wellness, or our special needs programs, you know that you are a part of our family. Our reputation is strong because of the continued strength of our wonderful and caring community and the many significant partnerships we are a part of, year after year.

We proudly assist many families each year with scholarships granted through our financial assistance program. This makes quality preschool, summer camp, and special needs programing attainable for all who wish to participate – this makes our community stronger. We’ve already touched so many lives through our fall programs – and we’re just getting started! I invite you to explore the courses, programs, services and events in these pages. Find something – or many things – that entice you. We welcome you to be a part of our year-round enriching programs. In so many ways, our J is here for you. 561-852-3200

There are many ways to support the Levis JCC. • Donate to the Annual Campaign When you give an unrestricted gift to the Levis JCC, you entrust your resources to our staff and lay leaders.

For joyous and somber occasions alike, making a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one, to mark a special anniversary, birthday or simcha is a special way for you to share the love and benefit our community at the same time.
