Welcome Home! This is your community center.
The Mittleman Jewish Community Center (MJCC) has been a vital part of the greater Portland community for 100 years. We provide a gathering place for the local Jewish community as well as warmly embracing people of all faiths within our membership.
The MJCC offers a wide variety of recreational programming for all ages, wonderful fitness facilities, as well as flexible space for your next meeting or event.
Our Mission and Purpose
The MJCC is dedicated to the enrichment of Jewish life by providing for the social, cultural, educational, and recreational needs of the Jewish community, and serving as the common meeting place for the entire Jewish community.
The MJCC is committed to enabling Jewish continuity through promotion of Jewish values; strengthening of Jewish family life; encouraging the appreciation of Jewish culture and the application of Jewish spiritual life in daily living; developing Jewish community leadership; and also serving as a communal resource to interpret and foster the relationships between the local Jewish community, Israel and world Jewry.
While primarily a membership agency, the MJCC strives to serve the overall community as well. MJCC programs and services are planned to provide opportunities for people of all ages, as individuals, as members of families, and of groups, to grow, develop, and achieve their potential; and also to enhance better understanding between the local Jewish community and the community at large.
The MJCC is comprised of many top-notch facilities. From the wonderful fitness facility and spa-like locker rooms, to the beautiful, flexible space of our ballroom, to the MJCC SportsPlex with indoor soccer field, you'll find that there's a place for everyone at the MJCC.
