JCC + Bayshore = J-SHORE!

The Jewish Community Center is happy to partner with the North Shore’s premiere shopping and entertainment complex, Bayshore Town Center. We established J-Shore to provide open playtime, classes, programs and services to members of our community who frequent Bayshore and so Bayshore visitors can get a taste of the JCC right at the mall. With 2 focus areas: an indoor space, (across from Playshore near the Food Court), and a outdoor towel cart (next to the outdoor stage) as well as special events and programs, Bayshore patrons including families, mall walkers and fountain-users have discovered the ease and convenience of J-Shore. See all we have to offer you at J-Shore and more more informatin about J-Shore and the programs and activities held at J-Shore, conact Dana Emold at 414-967-8174.

Classes for Kiddies & Open Playtime - see calendar below.

Open Playtime - Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 11:00-noon, bring your child to J-Shore for an hour of free play time in our fun, convenient and safe indoor space that children flock to! Meet friends and let the kids out of the stroller to run around, climb, jump and burn off some of that seemingly endless energy!

Wonderful 1’s, 2’s and 3’s - Children love this popular music and movement class which uses props, instruments, bubbles, circle time and more to engage and entertain toddlers. With the objectives of stimulating the child’s lifelong love of music, physical activity, socialization and fun, this class is geared to children ages 18 months-3 years. 

Dance With Me (Danceworks) - Expose your child to the world of music and movement, with a focus on movement. Class objectives are to incorporate rhythm, develop motor skills, stimulate brain development and awaken the senses. This class is geared to ages 3 months-3 years.


Whether you’re a casual stroller, fast-paced power-walker or somewhere in between, there’s a J-Walker that’s just your speed! Join the 100+ walking enthusiasts who find the climate-controlled safety of the Bayshore Town Center mall area a great way to get their exercise rain, snow or shine! Every month we give away a $25 Bayshore Gift Card to one lucky J-Walker. Contact Dana Emold at 414-967-8174 for information on the J-Walker program or click here for a printabe J-Walker form.

Towels Anyone?

Bring your child to Bayshore Town Center’s outdoor fountain on nice warm days and don’t even worry about packing a towel. We’ve got you covered. Frolic in the water, then dry off with a free, clean, dry towel.  Located near the outdoor fountain and stage.

Special Events

The JCC’s PJ Library puts on a concert every summer featuring a musical performer that will have your whole family singing along and dancing in the aisles!

Spend one of the 8 nights celebrating the miracle of Hanukkah with the JCC at our annual Community Hanukkah Celebration. Stop by the atrium of Bayshore Town Center and join the holiday fun! Local Jewish children’s choirs sing Hanukkah songs and student dancers show off what they’ve learned in at this celebration of the Jewish Festival of Lights.
