The 20,000-plus clients served annually by the Boro Park Jewish Community Center will now have their social service needs met at the new, state-of-the-art, center designed to serve the burgeoning needs of the Boro Park community.
The brand-new BPJCC facility opened on Monday, April 28 at 1310 46th Street.
“This is an incredible moment for Boro Park,” says Rabbi Avi Greenstein, BPJCC CEO. “The Boro Park JCC will retain the old tried and true values, while new services are in the works as well. The most important thing is that people who need services will have a respectful, private center to come to and obtain those services. The new BPJCC will serve as a role model for social service agencies everywhere.”
“Boro Park JCC’s new office means more of our neighbors will receive services in a confidential and respectful way,” said Councilman Kalman Yeger. “It’s so important that our community’s flagship social service program be able to grow and help more and more people. I’m proud of what BPJCC has been able to accomplish in such a short time under the spectacular leadership of Avi Greenstein and the JCC’s Board.”
The BPJCC’s wide range of services and programs have increased as well, with the advent of the new Workforce Initiative, which will provide career counseling and job training services. In addition, the Met Council, which has been providing services within the BPJCC, has augmented its programmatic services offered to assist the BPJCC in servicing increased numbers within the community.
