About Us

Who We Are

‘Community’ is our middle name

The Levite Jewish Community Center prides itself on being a welcoming facility to people of all faiths, ages, genders, sexual identities, and socioeconomic backgrounds. We are a family-oriented recreational and educational facility that is open to the entire community. As a recipient of Birmingham Jewish Federation and United Way dollars, we impact thousands of Birmingham residents annually. 

The LJCC is home to a large fitness center that includes free weights (dumbbells up to 100 lbs., specialty barbells, kettlebells, and bumper plates), Cybex machines, and cardio equipment (Stairmasters, treadmills, ellipticals, and concept II rowers). We also offer dozens of group fitness classes weekly, personal training, a five-mile hiking and biking trail, and large indoor and outdoor pools plus a baby pool.

Alongside our fitness offerings, we also boast a respected early childhood program, summer and year-round camps, and a wide range of other activities and programs. Everything from Jewish programming to aquatics classes are available in our facility that is conveniently located on 70 wooded acres off Montclair Road.

With “Community” being our middle name, we take pride in being an active partner of both the Birmingham Jewish and broader Birmingham communities. We make it our responsibility to serve and enhance the community through our mission every day.
