Detailed Collection Information 
 
Historical Note
The Jewish Community Centers (JCC) of Greater Philadelphia operated community and senior centers at locations throughout the city.  The centers provided educational, cultural, and social opportunities to Philadelphians regardless of race, creed, or national origin.  Formally dissolved in 2009, the organization traced its roots back to the founding of the Young Men’s Hebrew Association (YMHA) in 1875.
 
The YMHA was founded in 1875 to provide Jewish men with educational, entertainment, and social opportunities.  Women had limited participation in YMHA activities until 1920, when a separate YWHA was formed.  The two organizations soon shared facilities, and officially merged in 1924 to form the Young Men’s and Young Women’s Hebrew Association (YM-YWHA).  The YM-YWHA offered numerous clubs, athletic leagues, and educational opportunities.  They also established summer camps in the Philadelphia suburbs, including Camp Reeta and Camp Arthur, which operated from 1926 to the mid-1990s.  The YM-YWHA established many branches over the course of its operation and was affiliated with several similar organizations.  The main clubhouse changed address as the organization grew, and at various times was located at included Broad and Spring Garden Streets, 933 North Broad Street, and 1616 Master Street.  In 1924, a permanent home for the organization was constructed at Broad and Pine Streets.  The YM-YWHA continued as an independent organization until 1965, when it merged with the Neighborhood Centre.  
 
The Neighborhood Center was a community service organization and settlement house established in 1885 as the Young Women’s Union (YWU).  The YWU was organized to operate a kindergarten and to aid children of Eastern European Jewish immigrants settling in Philadelphia.  In 1918, the YWU reincorporated as the Neighborhood Centre.  Programming at the center included youth canteens, various hobby clubs, holiday camps, musical events, and classes in art, music, and drama.  In the 1960s, the similarity between the programming of the Neighborhood Centre and the YM-YWHA became apparent. Both organizations served all religious and ethnic groups in the neighborhoods they were located. Both had athletic facilities, and served children, adults, and the elderly equally; and both received funding from the United Way and the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia.  In 1965, the YM-YWHA merged with the Neighborhood Centre to form the Jewish Ys and Centers (JYC) of Greater Philadelphia.
 
From 1965 to 1984, the Jewish Ys and Centers (JYC) of Greater Philadelphia flourished.  During this period of time, new branches were established on the outskirts of Philadelphia, reflecting the movement of the city’s Jewish population.  In 1975, the new Raymond and Miriam Klein branch was established in Northeast Philadelphia.  The former Northeast branch, called the Neighborhood Centre, became the David G. Neuman Senior Center.  In 1976, the JYC’s Western branch was dedicated as the Kevy K. and Hortense M. Kaiserman branch.  The YM-YWHA branch remained at Broad and Pine Streets, as did the Multi-Service Center South branch at Marshall and Porter Streets.  
 
In 1984, the JYC reincorporated as the Jewish Community Centers (JCC) of Greater Philadelphia.  In 1985, the YM-YWHA branch was renamed the Gershman Y.   That same year, arson damaged the Multi-Service Center South, and, in 1987, the renovated building reopened as the Jacob and Esther Stiffel Senior Center.  Organizational changes occurred again in 2000, when the University of the Arts purchased the Gershman Y.  The university closed the Y’s fitness center, pool, and nursery, and the center transitioned to a community cultural and arts center.  A few years later, the organization’s two senior centers merged with the Klein Jewish Community Center, and the Neuman Senior Center was closed.  In 2009, the board voted to dissolve the JCC umbrella organization due to funding issues.  Two years later, the Stiffel Senior Center closed.  The Gershman Y, the Kaiserman Jewish Community Center, and the Klein Jewish Community Center remained open as three separate legal entities.
