Early Childhood





Leslie Meyers

Executive Director

Leslie Meyers comes to the Shames JCC on the Hudson with 20+ years of experience, having worked for the 92nd Street Y, the Oshman Family JCC in Palo Alto, and most recently, at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades.  She grew up in JCCs and spent much of her youth in Jewish camps, B’nai Brith Youth Organization, and in Israel.

Leslie says, “I would like to think that the cherished values of Chesed [loving-kindness] and Tikkun Olam [repairing the world] are imbued in all my work.  I hope that together we can strengthen the ties that bring people to the Shames JCC.  We want to continue to expand and improve our facility but what we’d really like to build is the authentic sense of community for the Rivertowns, which is our purpose and reason for being.”

Due to a mechanical failure with the pool heating system: The Aquatics Center IS CLOSED. Please check your email for updates.
