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