Founded in 1927 by the children of Jewish refugees from Eastern Europe, the JCH has always been a home for the Jewish community and our neighbors to gather, to celebrate, and to support one another in times of need. In the 1940s and onward, Jewish refugees fleeing Syria began to call the JCH home. In the 1950s and 1960s, the JCH was a basketball powerhouse, with famous JCH alumni like Sandy Koufax and Gary David Goldberg playing hoops. Beginning in the 1980s and peaking in the 1990s, the JCH became a haven for Jews from the former Soviet Union. Today, the primary constituency served by the JCH are Russian-speaking Jewish residents of Brooklyn. The staff of the JCH are largely Russian-speaking, and are representative of the continued arrival of immigrants from all over the world; JCH staff members speak 12 languages.
