Mission Statement

Inspired by Jewish values and ideas, the Kings Bay YM-YWHA strives to build and strengthen communities, create meaningful relationships and lasting friendships, and foster deeper connections among individuals, families, and partner institutions in Brooklyn.

From our flagship base in southern Brooklyn, where we operate a successful full-service Jewish community center, to our more recent inroads in Brownstone Brooklyn and North Brooklyn under the JCC Brooklyn umbrella, the Kings Bay Y has remained true to its 60-year-old mission.


Kings Bay Y is located at 3495 Nostrand Avenue (between Avenue U and V), Brooklyn, NY 11229

As a Jewish community center and proud partner of UJA-Federation of New York, we seek to address the needs of our diverse constituency, which includes both the Jewish community and community at large, families and individuals of all ages and ethnic, racial, religious, and cultural backgrounds.

We are grateful for the ongoing capital and program assistance provided by New York State Assemblywoman Helene Weinstein and New York State Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz, New York City Councilman Chaim Deutsch, New York City Councilman Brad Lander, and New York City Councilman Alan Maisel.
