About Us

Who We Are

The Levite Jewish Community Center prides itself on being a welcoming facility to people of all faiths, ages, genders, sexuality, and socioeconomic backgrounds. We are a family-oriented recreational and educational facility that is open to the entire community. As a recipient of United Way dollars, we impact more than 10,000 residents of the Birmingham community annually. 

The LJCC is home to an 380,657 sq. ft fitness center that includes the latest Life Fitness and Cybex cross-training machines. We also offer over 45 group fitness classes a week, personal training, a five-mile hiking and biking trail, and a large outdoor pool with 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 at our beautiful facility, conveniently located on 70 wooded acres off Montclair Road.

At the LJCC “Community” is quite literally our middle name. We take pride in being an active partner of both the Birmingham Jewish community as well as the broader Birmingham community. We make it our responsibility to create, serve, and enhance the community through our mission each and every day.
