Plans call for a new entrance-way, updated equipment, a new member lounge and a new childcare center. The Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center is located at 6255 N. Santa Monica Blvd. in Whitefish Bay.
“This investment reflects the core of our agency: our high standards, our big heart, our flexibility in service to our members, and our inclusive Jewish values,” said JCC President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Shapiro. “The time has come to affirm our place as a great service institution, and this investment will ensure that our members and guests experience the best possible JCC for years to come.”
Work on the project will begin in mid-May and is expected to be completed by September. During construction, the fitness center will be temporarily moved to the Soref Community Hall, according to a website the JCC created with information about the project. Access to the Marcus Gym, indoor track, aquatic center and fitness studios will be uninhibited.
“The strength of our JCC is on full display with this investment,” added board chair Alicia Sadoff. “In partnership with our board of directors, an incredible volunteer community, and a talented staff – our strategic investment assures that the JCC will continue in its mission-based success and remain a primary destination for wellness, education, and community services.”
