What is the J?

The Tucson J is a community space located in central Tucson at the base of the beautiful Catalina Foothills. For over 60 years, the Tucson J has been a home away from home for Tucsonans of all ages, abilities, faiths, and identities. We serve more than 5,000 people from all walks of life who come to the J to grow, play, learn, and relax. 

Built in 1989 and renovated in 2018, our beautiful 110,000 square-foot facility features an expansive fitness center, a full-court gymnasium, a heated swimming pool and sauna, a splash park, an indoor play space, six top-of-the-line tennis courts, two baseball fields, a beautiful sculpture garden, a meditation space, a community garden, a cafe, and so much more. 

We offer expansive programming for children and adults alike! Here are just a few of the things that you can do at the J:

  • Early childhood education for ages 6 weeks through pre-K
  • After-school care, summer camp, sports lessons and leagues, and arts/cultural enrichment for elementary, middle school, and high school kids
  • Adult sports leagues, specialty fitness classes, arts/cultural skill-based classes, and social clubs
  • Public fine arts spaces in the form of our sculpture garden, rotating gallery, and Garden of Hope

Most importantly, we offer a sense of community and acceptance to the entire Tucson community. We invite you to step inside and Live Up at The J!

Our Mission

The mission of the Tucson J is to cultivate and enrich Jewish identity, ensure Jewish continuity, foster wellness, and broaden communal harmony.

Our Vision

We create community based on Jewish values by providing the highest quality programs and services in a safe and secure environment for all people of all ages.

Cycle for Good is back! Join Laura Swenson and music with DJ Thoolan for a special 2 hour Spin ride to benefit The J Taglit Program.

Spinning wheels will complement spinning dreidels as the fourth annual Movement-wide stationary bike event called Cycle for Good takes off on Sunday, December 22, 2019. Thanks to staggered start times, many participants in Cycle for Good will ride indoor bikes at the same time in Jewish Community Centers across North America. Each JCC will ride and raise money for a charity of their choice.

Reserve your bike now for 8am, 9am or both for a suggested donation of $18!
