The JCC is Asheville’s Jewish Neighborhood

At the JCC, all are welcome to share in Jewish traditions, values and culture. Our JCC has been the home for Jewish life in Western North Carolina since 1940, and today we continue to be a vibrant and diverse community of people. The Asheville JCC strengthens Jewish identity, celebrates Jewish culture and builds community through a wide variety of programs for people from all backgrounds, at every stage of life.

Any way you prefer to connect, the JCC has something for you!

The price for an annual JCC membership has changed to $75 per adult and $50 per child. All program participants are required to become JCC members; Member/Non-Member rates for children’s programs have been eliminated.  The JCC welcomes individuals of every background, belief, age and identity to become a member, and there will be no requirement for a parent to become a member in order for a child to have a membership. We expect that these supporting memberships should be tax deductible, so please check with your accounting professional.

Only JCC members will be eligible to enroll in JCC childcare, summer camp and most aquatics programs, with the exception of swim lessons which will be open to the entire community. Since all enrolled children will now be JCC members, our early childhood, after school, and camp programs will no longer have separate rates for members and non-members. We hope this will simplify our billing significantly. When our pool opens this summer, we will offer summer only pool memberships and year-round pool memberships that can be paid on a monthly basis.
