Meyerhoff Family Engagement Center

We are planning to repurpose the Meyerhoff Early Learning Center space at the Weinberg Park Heights JCC to create an innovative engagement center for Baltimore families. Our goal at this time is to include drop-in play, Jewish programming, birthday party rentals, quality enrichment classes in art, sports, dance, and music, and outdoor play on the newly renovated playground. The center will also be the home of J Town, an innovative play space ideal for families with young children. The center is planned to officially open in Fall 2021.

We are thrilled to announce that Ellie Batkhan, Director of Jewish Family Engagement Director will lead this new project. Many parents may know Ellie from her previous roles as Manager of the Downtown Baltimore JCC Family Center, as well as the Director of the Meyerhoff Early Learning Center.
