About Us

Way More Than A Gym

Located in the historic Fort Homer Hesterly Armory, the Bryan Glazer Family Jewish Community Center (BGFJCC), opened its doors on December 8, 2016, which was renamed in 2023 to the Shanna and Bryan Glazer JCC, to serve a broad spectrum of community needs. Our facility is home to 100,000 square feet of health and fitness, recreation, the arts, entertainment, international business, and so much more. There is something for everyone to explore.
