About Us
Enrich. Explore. Connect.

Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center, the only full-service JCC on Long Island’s North Shore, is dedicated to serving every aspect of community wellness, regardless of age or ability.

We promote physical health through our cutting edge health and wellness center, while also providing for emotional and spiritual health through a variety of divorce, bereavement, and cancer support groups, as well as Jewish programming with our own staff rabbi. We broaden the horizons of our members of every age, from the youngest in infant and toddler day care to adult cultural programs to current events discussions for seniors. Sid Jacobson JCC also believes that everyone deserves to live a dignified existence, no matter what his or her condition. With this in mind, we offer programs for those with Alzheimer’s disease and other chronic conditions, as well as programming for children and teens living with special needs.

Our Mission

The Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center promotes Jewish identity. We provide a comprehensive program based on Jewish values, traditions, heritage and culture and are committed to enriching the lives of all the individuals and families in our community.

Our Vision

We, the Sid Jacobson JCC, serve our community with quality programs and services that promote social, cultural and physical well-being. Our focus is on our community, those we touch directly and those we touch in collaboration with others, but we also value our connection with K’lal Yisrael (the broad Jewish community) and Israel. We live in a constantly changing world. Our programs and services evolve as our members and their needs evolve. We recognize that serving tomorrow well begins by reaching out today.
