Our Case Statement
The Barshop Jewish Community Center has provided programs for ‘birth through life’ for generations of San Antonio Jews, regardless of affiliation, and for greater San Antonio. Our mission is, and always has been, to strengthen Jewish life and inspire Jewish Journeys. With The Campus serving as our home, we unite the Jewish community, reinforcing the potential of individuals and families through the shared experience of arts & culture, education and fitness & recreation.
The JCC is an inclusive and welcoming intergenerational environment where differences are respected and similarities are celebrated. We help individuals and the community develop to their maximum potential, from our youngest member in Early Childhood to all adults as they age. The JCC empowers individuals to grow and live with dignity by providing programs and opportunities that enhance their lives.
Our legacy donors are our most ardent supporters. They believe in the JCC mission. They each have a JCC story that illustrates how their lives were impacted through experiences with Early Childhood, Camp, Arts & Culture or Fitness & Recreation.
Your Legacy gift ensures that the JCC will continue that mission, to thrive as an important, vibrant part of our community, and to serve as the central meeting place that preserves and strengthens Jewish life in San Antonio.
