Charles Schusterman Jewish Community Center – Our Story
Originally the site of the Camp Shalom pool in the early 1970’s, the land where our building stands now was then part of a dream to establish a Jewish Community Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 1977, the Tulsa Jewish Community Council, made up of local business leaders and community volunteers, launched a fundraising campaign to turn that dream into a reality.
Dedicated in 1981, what is now known as the Charles Schusterman JCC serves families of all faiths and backgrounds. The JCC is a welcoming facility with membership open to all. Members enjoy our fitness center, pool, fun family programs, our 5-acre sports complex, indoor gymnasium, squash and racquetball courts, and more.
Owned and operated by the Jewish Federation of Tulsa, the JCC campus is also home to the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art, Mizel Jewish Community Day School, Liberators’ Park, the JFT Community Garden, and Zarrow Pointe retirement center.
Charles Schusterman Jewish Community Center has been selected for the 2019 Best of Tulsa Awards in the category of Recreation.
