About JCC/CJC in North County

Signature programs from The Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center, JACOBS FAMILY CAMPUS and San Diego Center for Jewish Culture are now in North County!

Our goal is to meet the needs of the widely diverse and quickly growing Jewish population in North County by:
• Building on our current programming
• Delving deeper into Jewish cultural and educational interests of the community
• Engaging the community to help develop the richness of Jewish life in the area.
North County programming is made possible by the support and generosity of the Leichtag Foundation.
