join the jcc

more than a gym

When you join the Harry & Rose Family Jewish Community Center, you join more than a gym. You join a place of heart, standards, flexibility, and inclusivity (and, yes, a state-of-the-art fitness facility). As a premier destination for wellness, education, and community services – the JCC is the place where friendship comes with fitness and your membership supports community programs that address food insecurity, welcomes individuals with disabilities, and helps us partner to build a healthier Milwaukee.

And while our programs are built on Jewish values, you don’t have to be Jewish to join the JCC. We offer an inclusive environment where members of all walks of life can expand their horizons and find common ground. In short, The J is for everyone.

Summer at the JCC!

Find your summer community as a JCC member! Not only do members enjoy priority registration and discounts on classes, programs, and camps, but they also enjoy access to the Hy & Richard Smith JCC Water Park for the rest of the summer!

Since everything is more fun with friends, we’re giving away 4 Free Guest Passes (valued at $100) to bring your friends to our JCC facilities (including the water park).

Already a JCC member? Don’t worry – you can still get in on the fun with 4 Free Guest Passes, too, when you refer a friend.
