This program guide offers a snapshot of the MNjcc's extensive programs. It shows how we serve people of all ages and backgrounds and are accessible to all.
When you walk through our doors there are hundreds of activities taking place, running the gamut from arts and culture to fitness and aquatics, to adult learning, social networking, skills building and education that is second to none.
As a charity, we provide programming for children, youth, families, seniors and newcomers that rely on the generosity of donors who share our commitment to excellence through their philanthropic gifts.
Your MNjcc is more than a place to exercise and get fit. It's a place where people come to connect the mind, body and spirit. We invite you to support the MNjcc and make a generous gift that will: • Send underserved children to camp where they can create friendships, and learn to swim and play sports.
• Fund arts programming that covers film, and the visual and performing arts through the Toronto Jewish Film Society, The Gallery at the J and the Al Green Theatre.
• Provide meaningful programming for an isolated senior so they can attend a weekly lecture, exercise, or swim in our pool.
• Provide Jewish Life programming that includes celebrations and education about our traditions.
• Sustain our ability to be a leader in accessibility and inclusion by supporting one of our recreational or arts programs for children with disabilities.
As you enjoy our vast programming, we invite you to make a tax-deductible contribution and help transform the lives of our community through the gift of recreation, arts and education.
To make a difference, please pick up a donation card, go to "Donate Now" on our website, or please call us at (416) 924-6211, x328, or mail your donation to 750 Spadina Avenue, Toronto, M5S 2J2 today.

It's official, after 63 years of extensive use, our saltwater pool will undergo a major renovation and rebuild.
For the past six decades, the Freddie Shore Aquatic Centre has been one of the MNjcc's central meeting spaces. It's a place where children have learned to swim, families have enjoyed time together, seniors have exercised and those with disabilities have enjoyed meaningful interaction and aquatics.
Now due to age, our pool is in need of a rebuild and an investment in capital. Beginning in April 2016, we will start construction. The new pool will feature an accessible steel pool, slip proof tiling, improved lighting and sound system, and an expanded pool width for a new accessible ramp.
In order for the MNjcc to build this new state-of-the-art pool, we need your help. We invite you to associate your name in a significant and lasting manner by making a donation for our new pool.
To set up a meeting to discuss how you can make a difference and the benefits associated with supporting the pool, please contact Judy Tobe at [email protected] or (416) 924-6211 x118 or you can make your donation on-line at
We invite you to make a generous gift to help the MNjcc rejuvenate, revitalize and renew its pool for generations to come.
