When you step into the Evelyn Rubenstein JCC, you'll find a centre filled with remarkable people, dedicated volunteers and a wide-array of year-round programs, activities and special events. At the J, we're committed to enriching the lives of our members and the community. Since 1936 we've been a place where families and individuals come together for friendship, affiliation and socialisation in a safe and welcoming environment. Throughout our buildings, you'll find a committed staff working together to provide our members and guests with quality experiences, excellent service and a sense of belonging.
Let us host your next special event at the newly-renovated Merfish Teen Center - over 3,500 sq. ft. of private ballroom space, perfect for Bar and Bat Mitzvah receptions, holiday parties, weddings, sales meetings, banquets and graduation parties, eight meeting rooms, outdoor recreation space with a covered sports pavilion and a 25-metre pool available to rent.
The centre is over 70 years old and has been at its current location, 5601 South Braeswood, for over 40 years. More than a focal point of the Jewish community in Houston, it is a familiar landmark that welcomes all members of the community regardless of background, age, sex or religion, providing an outstanding calendar of arts and culture programs for the entire Houston community.
