Order your J’la tickets today

Tickets are now available for the third annual J’la — one of Birmingham’s favorite gala fundraisers. The theme of the August 8 event is “Growing Stronger Together,” which celebrates the critical role The J plays in the lives of thousands of our neighbors every year.

For $125, ticketholders will enjoy an open bar and gourmet kosher meal and be able to participate directly in the live and silent auctions (people not attending the event will be able to bid virtually on silent auction items).

At this year’s gala, presented by Daxko, we’ll be enjoying cocktails and serving up a gourmet kosher meal while hosting silent and live auctions that will help us hit our goal of $200,000. The funds will support our myriad scholarship-related initiatives, including:

  • Discounted memberships for our neighbors who demonstrate financial need
  • Swim School for underserved children
  • Our fee-free youth theater program, which so far this year has allowed some 50 kids the opportunity to shine on stage in an impressive production of Annie JR.
  • Memberships for: Israeli citizens who have been displaced by the ongoing war,  local Jewish Hillel students to use our pool this summer, and military veterans (like Ron Jefferson, who use our pools for therapeutic aqua aerobics)
  • Discounted memberships for employees of Birmingham’s numerous Jewish organizations plus United Way
  • Discounted memberships for residents of Glenwood, a local provider of autism and behavioral health services
  • Free memberships for Birmingham’s first-responders
