The Staenberg Family Complex in Creve Coeur and the Marilyn Fox Building in Chesterfield offer a world-class fitness experience to JCC members. Each features the latest in equipment technology, full gymnasiums that can accommodate basketball, volleyball and badminton; indoor and outdoor running tracks; and a total of six indoor and outdoor pools. The SFC also offers racquetball, handball, international squash and tennis courts, and batting cages are available at FOX. All memberships include free group exercise, yoga, Spin and mat Pilates classes, as well as access to nationally-certified personal trainers.

While health and wellness is our mission, the J isn’t just about fitness. Hundreds of programs educate and challenge people of all ages and abilities. The accredited Early Childhood Center (both locations) offers care and award-winning curriculum for children six weeks through five years. The Adult Day Center (SFC) provides the highest-quality care for loved ones, and senior adult programming provides catered and home-delivered meal services.

The J hosts a variety of summer day camps at both locations, and Camp Sabra provides a residential sleep-away camp experience on the Lake of the Ozarks. Professional cultural programming, including the St. Louis Jewish Book and Film Festivals, live theater from the renowned New Jewish Theatre and children’s theater round out offerings that serve the minds, bodies and souls of the Jewish community, and the community at large.

Jonathan Deutsch is Board Chair.
