Which Jews join Jewish Community Centers in the United States? How do JCC members differ from other American Jews in terms of their age, family configurations, social status and other major socio-demographic characteristics? The profile of the current membership of Jewish Community Centers has a direct bearing upon Centersâ ongoing efforts to recruit and retain JCC members. Knowing who the JCCs currently reach can suggest the sort of constituencies that may be most amenable for further membership recruitment efforts. And, knowing who the JCCs fail to attract can provide clues to the sorts of barriers that inhibit Jews from joining Jewish Community Centers.
