Jewish Community Center

The JCC’s across the country support Jewish culture, community, and education.

They also encourage and enable all ages and backgrounds to engage in the joys of Jewish living.

The 2013 Master Plan served as a guide for the Jewish Community Center of Greater Rochester to grow and develop while maintain its critical mission to provide opportunities for meaningful cultural enrichment, physical well-being along with social, educational and recreational experiences for individuals and families. The master planning efforts aligned the center with other contemporary fitness and wellness facilities while continuing the Center’s cultural values.

CJS focused on renovation the existing facility. Our team worked with the Center leadership to identify new fitness programs that would be appealing to families and increase interest in membership. CJS also analyzed the existing building to determine key strategies and design elements that would allow more natural light and improved sight lines within the center.

The result was a design that centralized activity as well as showcased the center’s renovated amenities such as a indoor new pool (August 2016) and progressive fitness facility (July 2016).
