Germantown Jewish Centre

400 West Ellet Street
Philadelphia, PA 19119

The Germantown Jewish Centre (GJC) has been the heart of the Jewish community in Northwest Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs for 75 years. We are a vibrant, pluralistic and egalitarian synagogue located in Mount Airy and committed to sustaining and strengthening Jewish life in greater Philadelphia.

Affiliated with the Conservative movement and receptive to the wisdom of many sources in Judaism, we engage in life-long Jewish learning and strive to make Judaism relevant and important to our members' lives. As a welcoming community, we embrace a wide diversity of Jewish lifestyles and households. Encouraging a variety of styles and setting for religious practice, we foster multiple prayer communities.We sustain each other by celebrating holidays and life-cycle events, and by sharing in cultural and social activities, social activism, and community building.

We support the State of Israel and Klal Israel. We work to strengthen Northwest Philadelphia through civic and interreligious activities. To these ends, we maintain a fiscally sustainable institution. We welcome anyone who shares our values and our commitment to Jewish community life.
