What the JCC Means to Me
The Jewish Community Center of Greater Buffalo has been part of the Western New York community for nearly 75 years. During that time, it has become the town square of Jewish life and culture where people of all backgrounds come together under one roof to celebrate arts, culture, fitness, and wellness. From our members, to our staff and the WNY community, there are so many reasons why the JCC is a special place for all. This series explores these inspiring stories.
