The JCC wants to help make your Jewish Journey meaningful. From our Israeli Schlichut Program to classes and events, holiday celebrations and even our summer program, O-la-mi, we are committed to strengthening Jewish identity and creating a connection between Diaspora Jewry and the State of Israel.


Speak up for Israel for Teens
Grades 11 & 12
Not sure what to say if someone bashes Israel? Learn the facts, ask the hard questions and know your answers. Israel gets a bad rap especially on college campuses. Join an elite group of high school juniors and seniors and learn from experts in the field - AIPAC, ADL, Jerusalem U and Stand With Us, how to respond and take action. Students enrolled will attend the AIPAC conference in March. Spaces are limited. For more information or to register, contact Or Berger, the JCC Israeli Shaliach at 203-487-0961 or A partnership program between the JCC and UJF.

B’nai Brith Youth Organization (BBYO)
Grades 8 – 12
The Stamford JCC partners with BBYO, the world’s leading pluralistic Jewish teen movement, to offer Jewish teens the opportunity to connect with one another, volunteer in the community, celebrate their Jewish heritage, prepare for leadership roles, and travel the world together, all within a Jewish context. Teens are given realresponsibilities and develop leadership skills that relate to their everyday lives.
By practicing public speaking, program planning and community organizing, BBYO teens build the skills that not only make them more confident and capable of navigating the challenging teen years but also prepare them to make positive contributions to the world around them as adults. BBYO meets at the Stamford JCC every other Monday. Membership dues are $149 for all 4 years of high school and 8th grade. For more information, please visit or contact Josh Cohen, Area Field Director BBYO Northeast at or Tyler Pepe, Associate Regional Director, at

R&R is an active social program that meets during the academic year. We meet on and off JCC premises to participate in activities together such as cooking, seeing theater performances, varied sports events, pool parties, volunteering, and much more, which are not only fun but also enhance team-building skills. The social groups provide youths with a structured and safe environment to develop their social skills and build relationships. The goal of R&R is learning to work together!

Junior Boxing Club

Ages 8 & up

Evander Holyfield began his boxing training when he was 8 years old and weighed 65 pounds. He went on to become an Olympic medalist and four-time world heavyweight champion. Your child may not become a heavyweight champion, but he or she can reap several benefits from the sport of boxing. Boxing will teach your child how to throw punches, including the jab, cross, hook and uppercut. Correct body mechanics needed to throw these techniques with the most speed and power will also be taught. Boxing offers children several psychological benefits, including improved confidence, self-discipline and determination. For more information, contact Lori Price at 203.487.0967 or

This class will make you stronger, faster, more powerful and make you feel better by performing high-energy functional movements that are natural and safe.
