Jewish Community Centers as Jewish Environment Centers

By Reuven Kimelman

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1992

The educational effectiveness of Jewish Community Centers can be maximized by applying the principles of environment education. These principles hold that the purpose of the JCC environment is to enable Jewishness to be heard, seen, smelled, tasted, and touched before, during, and after participating in the programs of the Center. By engaging all the senses, Center education compounds its effect by becoming synesthetic.
