The J is far beyond a workout facility. It’s a place to find your passion and reach for the stars. It’s a caring community that inspires values. It’s a place to meet new friends and set your family on a path to wellness. It’s your second home. It’s the J. Live up! The Shaw JCC is open to all members of our community regardless of religious preference, marital, sexual, or economic status.
The Akron Jewish Center—the community’s central home–was first formed in 1920 and moved into a new building on Balch Street in 1929. Today, over 90 years later, the 60-acre community campus on White Pond Drive, renovated through a $7 million dollar capital campaign in 2004-2005, is home to the Jerry Shaw Jewish Community Center of Akron. The community campus also houses the Jewish Community Board of Akron, Jewish Family Service, and The Lippman School.
