The Jewish Community Project (JCP) of Lower Manhattan, Inc. was founded in 2002 as a grass-roots effort to grow Jewish life in downtown NYC. Based in Tribeca, JCP is an open and organic Jewish community which enables individuals and families to become a creative force in the life of the organization, and to connect to others through Jewish educational, cultural, social, and spiritual programs. The organization serves approximately 600 families and individuals living in downtown Manhattan.
The JCP philosophy encourages people to have a strong sense of personal ownership in their Jewish lives, and offers the tools to design and explore one’s own personal or family Jewish journey. As a post-denominational organization, JCP seeks to provide offerings to families of diverse Jewish and interfaith backgrounds who wish to connect and enjoy a sense of community. Its warm and inviting environment allows people to express their Jewish identities at all stages of life, through high quality, innovative and creative programming.
Today, JCP operates a prominent early childhood center, which includes a Jewish community preschool and a variety of programming for children ages 6 months to 5 years; a pre-school day camp; a Hebrew school; community-wide Shabbat and holiday programs throughout the year; and adult education..
