For more than 135 years, the JCC has developed an outstanding reputation as a “birth through life” institution providing exceptional programs and services to individuals and families of all ages and stages from both the Jewish and wider communities.
Located in the heart of San Antonio, we inspire Jewish Journeys and provide countless opportunities for San Antonians to Live Up – to their goals, their aspirations, and their potential – through a variety of programming including Fitness & Wellness, Sports & Recreation, Arts & Culture, Education & Enrichment, and so much more.
Many of our programs are open and available to the community at large. Those interested in select services and facilities may consider a JCC Membership. We are driven by the Jewish values of kindness, respect, and communal responsibility; and we warmly welcome people of all ages, faiths and ethnicities.
Whether you prefer to browse our website or take a personal tour of our facility, we invite you to explore the endless possibilities available to you. We look forward to inspiring your Jewish Journey.

[My daughter] was singing "Shabbat Shalom - Hey!" The only place she could have learned it is through her time at school (Block and Dreeben School for Young Children). Singing and dancing to "Shabbat Shalom" and yelling "Hey!" has become one of her favorite things to do.
Cardio Fitness Blast! is a newly designed class at the JCC incorporating three very important workout techniques in one session: Cardiovascular Endurance Fitness/Resistance Training, and Interval Training.
There’s something Fish-y on stage this month at The Sheldon Vexler Theatre. Israel Horovitz’s comedic drama, North Shore Fish, is a “blue collar elegy, a tough, funny and eventually poignant look at the expendability of people when their jobs - and lives - become obsolete” (Associated Press, 1987).
