JCCs of North America JSummit

Gathering the JCC Movement’s Leadership

Throughout the more than century-long legacy of the JCC Movement, the professional and lay leadership have gathered regularly to support the needs of our communities in Canada and the U.S. and the Jewish homeland—Israel. JCCs of North America JSummit renews our commitment to strengthen the bonds of our shared mission across the network of more than 170 Jewish community centers and Jewish community camps across North America.


JSummit is our movement’s signature gathering for top lay and professional leaders of every one of the more than 170 JCC communities across the U.S. and Canada. Face to face, we will devote our time to conversation, collaboration, and coalition in two main areas: 1. the actionable strategies that will propel JCCs forward from this moment and 2. the major issues JCCs will face in the years ahead. We’ll hear from and interact with prominent Jewish leaders and thinkers who will help inform and challenge our perspectives around the emerging issues of the day and, in light of these issues, where and how we can most effectively fulfill our mandate to be North America’s principal engine for greater Jewish community and more vibrant Jewish life.

Participants: JSummit is for JCC board presidents, board chairs, board members, and their JCC professional leadership.

Dates: September 16-18, 2024

Location: Chicago, Illinois

Hotel: Information and hotel block will be announced shortly.
