Help Support Our Mission

Volunteers help JCCMW more effectively achieve its mission. You can make a difference by giving your time.

JCCMW provides Westchester teens, adults, and families with numerous volunteer opportunities and community service projects that meet the needs of our neighbors, build community connections, and provide professional skill-building opportunities. Through community service and our volunteer programs, we can live the Jewish value of tikkun olam (repairing the world).
