Our Mission
The Jewish Discovery Center is founded on the principle that, while Jews embrace many levels of observance in their personal lives, there should be a place for all Jews - no labels and no affiliations - to develop a sense of community, to enhance the experience of being Jewish, to learn and have fun. Our purpose is to uplift, teach, and inspire Jews, to help identify with the beauty and richness of our heritage. There is no commitment involved - just an opportunity to explore and be enriched.
