At The Bryan Glazer Family JCC (BGFJCC), our mission is to strengthen family life and promote the health, education and welfare of our members and our community. The BGFJCC is convenient and accessible, providing abundant opportunities for the Jewish community and all south Hillsborough county residents to enjoy recreational, educational, cultural and social activities.
Located in the historic Fort Homer Hesterly Armory, the Bryan Glazer Family Jewish Community Center (BGFJCC), opened its doors on December 8, 2016, to serve a broad spectrum of community needs. Our facility is home to 100,000 square feet of health and fitness, recreation, the arts, entertainment, international business, and so much more. It is also a premier venue for events of all sizes.
The Tampa Jewish Federation seeks to enrich the quality of life Jewish life in Tampa by bringing comfort and hope to the vulnerable and by investing in programs that build Jewish knowledge, identity and ensuring the next generation of Jews.
We care for people in need, respond to real-life crises near and far, and strive to build a strong and unified community of people of all ages and religious backgrounds.
In uncertain times, our purpose has never been more clear and simple. We are fueled by our Annual Campaign thanks to the generosity of our corporate partners and donors. Our Annual campaign raises millions of dollars each year to fund agencies locally — including Jewish day schools, fraternal organizations on local college campuses, the Bryan Glazer Family JCC, the JCC on the Cohn Campus, as well as numerous social-service programs to care for those in need in Tampa.
The JCC on the Cohn Campus is the heart of a vibrant, harmonious and connected community that embraces everyone. We strive to be a unifying force for Jewish and non-Jewish activity in Tampa, and provide a warm, welcoming atmosphere for community gatherings and activities.
Our campus houses a JCC Preschool, the Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Village Assisted Living Residences, Club J Afterschool Enrichment Programming, a fitness center, tennis courts and pool. All nestled on over 30 acres of land complete with two lakes and plenty of outdoor activity space.
