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.
