Welcome to The Jewish Community Project (JCP) Downtown. 

JCP’s mission is to build a new model of Jewish belonging. JCP cultivates a community in which members develop a strong sense of personal ownership and connection to Jewish identity. We engage families of diverse Jewish and interfaith backgrounds with meaningful educational, spiritual and cultural programs that invite people to explore their Jewish heritage and sense of Jewish community. We serve families and individuals living in Downtown Manhattan — Tribeca, Battery Park City, SoHo, the West Village, and the Financial District.

Throughout the year, we offer a variety of touch points for Jewish life: Shabbat and holiday celebrations; education through our Early Childhood Center, Hebrew School, B’nai Mitzvah, and adult engagement programs; and warm community gatherings.

We are pluralistic, open, and independent and are not affiliated with any denomination or national organization. Our members are as diverse as this city: individuals, families, kids, adults, Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, observant, secular, straight, LGBT, spiritually connected, single-faith, multi-faith, inter-faith, journeying, searching, and everything in between.

JCP is not a dues-paying organization. We are supported by the generous donations, tzedakah contributions, and support of every member of our community who make gifts to JCP at levels that are meaningful to them.

You have an open invitation to learn more about JCP by giving us a call, setting up a meeting with a staff member, or coming to an event or class. Our email is jcpdowntown@jcpdowntown.org and our phone number is 212-335-3422.
