About Staenberg Loup Jewish Community Center

For nearly 100 year, the JCC"s mission has been to build a community rooted in Jewish values where everybody feels like they belong.  Our center was founded in 1922 as a place of refuge for the Jewish people of Denver where they could safely gather under one roof to celebrate the cultural aspect of being Jewish.  

Today the JCC is a community that extends beyond the walls in which we do business.  We open our doors to anyone who wants to celebrate life and be a part of something more.
