About Us


Your Mandell JCC is a community of people of all ages, stages and beliefs who share laughter, learning, listening, and leading.  Members are part of a "neighborhood" where minds grow more active, bodies grow stronger, and friendships grow exponentially.

On its main campus in West Hartford, you will find a range of fitness, recreation, education and cultural facilities including a state-of-the-art fitness center, a cultural center, a preschool, an aquatics center, a theater, a family room, an art gallery, a lecture hall and a physical therapy center. Off campus, the Mandell JCC has five satellite facilities – Camp Shalom, in Windsor; The Swim & Tennis Club, in Bloomfield; The Mandell JCC Valley Sports & Community Center, in Canton; The Shirley Reaback Early Childhood Center, in Glastonbury; and The Mandell JCC Fitness Center at Saint Francis, in Hartford.

The Mandell JCC is committed to inclusion and to enabling all individuals to participate in social, cultural and educational experiences, whenever possible, through reasonable accommodation, unless doing so constitutes an undue hardship and/or is not readily achievable. We are a Jewish community open to everyone regardless of faith, who value caring for and sharing with each other. It is a place that is warm and inclusive. It is a place to call your own.
