About Us


SPECIAL OFFER: Put ‘The J’ in your January

New members who join between now and the end of January 2022 pay only $20. We’ll even waive your $75 enrollment fee, for a total savings of up to $165 for the month (with membership rates returning to their pre-promotional levels starting February 1).

Since its founding in 1906, the Levite Jewish Community Center has bridged the Jewish and non-Jewish communities. We were one of the first community centers in Birmingham to accept female members, and the first community center to open its doors to all races during the civil rights movement. Today our doors are open to people of all faiths, ages, genders, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic backgrounds, and we offer multiple membership options to fit all lifestyles and budgets.

We focus on community and wellness as a whole, and our varied programming serves as a gathering place for our diverse membership.
