SIJCC’s core programs are steeped in education, arts and culture and are centered around LA’s east side. We offer our community a "sense of place", and our members rely on us for creative, compelling programming for adults and children. We pack a busy calendar of classes and events, as well as our signature programs - Preschool, Jewish Learning Center, East Side Jews and Culture Lab.
The mission of the Silverlake Independent Jewish Community Center is to be a home for culture, ideas and belonging on the east side of Los Angeles. The SIJCC provides a family education center and community gathering space based in Jewish values and tradition. The SIJCC celebrates an expression of Judaism that welcomes people of all backgrounds.
The SIJCC is committed to:
- Fostering a gathering space for the local community;
- Providing a nurturing early childhood education to the young members of our community;
- Developing a foundation for children and their families to explore Jewish culture;
- Celebrating together by creating events by the community, for the community;
- Sharing the values and ethics of our heritage through educational, recreational and social programming.
