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.
We focus on community and wellness as a whole, and our varied programs serve as gathering places for our diverse membership.
CHILDREN UNDER 12 must be accompanied at all times by a parent/guardian when not attending a supervised program. Check with staff for any possible exceptions.
