The Marks JCH (a 501 c(3) organization) has been the community anchor serving southwestern Brooklyn since our doors opened in 1927. A home away from home, a place where you met the love of your life; where you learned to play basketball or won your first championship; a place where your child develops and grows. It is a social service center, a recreational hub and a resettlement house. It is a center of Jewish community life, it’s a gathering point where all of the diverse faces of southwest Brooklyn are represented and often and always welcome.

More than four million individuals of all ages, religions and nationalities have relied upon our full array of community-based social service, health, educational, cultural, and recreational programs.  Since the mid 1980s, we have helped more than 50,000 émigrés from the former Soviet Union to resettle in the U.S.

Our programs at the “J” are funded by grants from the city and state of New York, by UJA-Federation of New York and by prestigious foundations such as Robin Hood, Butler, and the Carl Marks Family Foundation, as well as by gifts from generous individuals like you. With your support of the “J”, you help us to help others in our community and beyond.

We are asking you to help us this year as generously as you can.  Your gift will make a real difference in real people’s lives.  We will be glad to show you around and let you see for yourself how your contribution is being put to work.  Just give us a call.

Gifts of many different forms can be beneficial to the “J”. We thank you for your trust, we value your support and we look forward to continuing a tradition of giving. To become a Friend of the “J”, please contact Yelena Kreper at 718-331-6800 ext. 192.
