Special Events

The JCC of Greater Baltimore hosts two fundraising events each year: the Community Block Party and J LIVE. Then, every other year, the J stages an awards celebration, the Baltimore Jewish Hall of Fame.

Together, these three events serve a dual purpose.

First, to convene community and celebrate all our Jewish community has to offer.

Second, these events raise funds for need-based scholarships for children and families to participate in programs at the J. Hundreds of individuals are helped each year by the JCC - the unemployed, the widow, the retiree, the child with special needs, the student athlete. Currently the JCC provides more than $550,000 in financial assistance. And your financial support – your very participation in these events - ensures the J is connecting families, supporting individuals, and building a stronger community.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor of any of these programs, please contact Esther Greenberg, Chief Advancement Officer, | 410.559.3545.
