JCA Staff

The Jewish Community Alliance is more than just offices and a building. It is also people – volunteers and staff – all dedicated to the traditions of tikkun olam (repairing the world) and gmilut chasadim (acts of loving kindness).

The Jewish Community Alliance facility is currently closed to the public, but the J is operating remotely, and will continue to offer programs, activities and information to meet your needs and keep you engaged and connected. Please visit us on social media, check back here often, and sign up for our email list to stay up to date!
