About The Friedberg JCC
The Friedberg JCC is the very pulse of Long Island's South Shore Jewish community. It is an all encompassing facility, dedicated to providing and maintaining the spirit of Judaism and its values through the strengthening of Jewish family life and culture.
The Friedberg JCC has been serving Long Island's south shore community for over 50 years and provides social and educational programs, plus vitally needed services for individuals of all ages. It is where friends, neighbors and family come together to discover their Jewish identity, be themselves and just have fun.
Located in Oceanside, New York, with centers in both Merrick and Long Beach, the JCC operates programs for new mothers/new babies, day care, nursery school, after school activities, summer camps, teen programs, adult activities, special needs programs, holiday events and cultural activities for all. These extensive and varied programs are reflective of the JCC's compelling mission to create a dynamic, caring community that helps families, youth, the elderly and the disabled at all economic levels.
The Barry and Florence Friedberg Jewish Community Center promotes Jewish Life and Values by providing programs and services in a warm and caring environment for all people in every stage of life.

UJA-Federation of New York's Mission: To care for those in need, strengthen Jewish peoplehood, and foster Jewish renaissance in New York, in Israel, and throughout the world. Ever since a group of New York Jews first came together to help impoverished European immigrants in the early 20th century, UJA-Federation has been caring for those in need. As subsequent generations have faced new challenges, UJA-Federation has continuously evaluated and adjusted how it goes about its life-saving work. Today, their mission embraces three core ideas: caring, renewing, and connecting. (Courtesy of www.ujafedny.org)
