The mission of the Peninsula Jewish Community Center (PJCC) is to build a caring and connected community, develop leadership, and strengthen Jewish identity and values in a center with an environment that is welcoming to all people at every stage of life.
We are proud of our diverse, multicultural community guided by Jewish values (Shleimut) celebrating wholeness of body, mind, and spirit.
The below policies help us ensure that the PJCC remains a place where all are welcome. They help ensure your safety as well as the safety of other members and guests.
The Center Café at the J conforms to a dairy/vegetarian/fish menu. The poolside barbeque serves only kosher meats on non-dairy buns. Shellfish and pork products are not permitted on the premises. During the eight days of Passover each spring, the café is closed in order to avoid serving any leavened foods.
