The time has finally arrived for Accrisoft's annual roundup of the best JCC websites of the year!

We had the pleasure of looking through hundreds of JCC websites to make our final selections. While searching for the very best, we noticed several design elements that seemed to be trending among JCC websites.

What's trending on JCC websites in 2015:

  • Full-width image rotators
  • Photos with color overlays
  • Grid layouts
  • Generous use of whitespace
  • Vibrant accent colors
  • User-friendly navigation elements
  • Flat design

You'll notice these trends and other great design elements on this year's list! So now, without further ado (and in no particular order), I present to you our choices for the 15 best JCC websites of 2015!


Aaron Family Jewish Community Center of Dallas

JCC of Dallas website

The JCC of Dallas website is sleek and sophisticated, with a dark background and stunning photography. We love the pop-out menu and photo grids.


Jewish Community Center of the Lehigh Valley

Lehigh Valley JCC website

This website features prominent call-to-action links in the image rotator,  as well as some really nice flat design elements.


Valley of the Sun Jewish Community Center

Valley of the Sun JCC

In addition to a clean design with high quality photography, this website features a "lazy load" feature where content loads on a slight delay as you scroll down the page.


Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia

JCC of Northern Virginia website

On the JCC of Northern Virginia website, the full-page image rotator has a great rollover effect that dims the image and reveals a caption and call-to-action buttons.

Hartford JCC website

This JCC website features a really nice menu design and an image rotator with playful transition effects.

Mittleman JCC website 

The website for this Oregon JCC has a full-width image rotator, prominent call-to-action buttons, and great flat design elements.

JCC NJ website

The JCC of Central New Jersey website has a clean design and a user-friendly navigation that allows visitors to browse programs by age or interest.


Roth Family Jewish Community Center of Greater Orlando

Roth Family JCC website

We really like the elegant way that alerts are displayed across the top of the Roth Family JCC website. On interior pages, icons are used to represent the J's different programs.


David Posnack Jewish Community Center

David Posnack JCC website

Soft, flat colors and a generous use of whitespace give the David Posnack JCC website a clean and modern look. At the footer of the site, you'll find an event lister and mini-calendar.


Rosen Jewish Community Center of Greater Orlando

Rosen JCC website

On the Rosen JCC's homepage, there is a section that allows visitors to easily toggle between programs, a calendar and membership info. We really like the photo grid and the way that the toggle feature economizes on space.


Memphis Jewish Community Center

Memphis JCC website

The Memphis JCC website is clean and simple, with a nice image rotator and photo grid for highlighting key programs. The embedded contact form in the footer encourages visitors to request more information about membership.


Barshop Jewish Community Center of San Antonio

Subtle geometric patterns and soft colors give the San Antonio JCC website a cool, modern look.


Jewish Community Center of Youngstown

The JCC of Youngstown website features an image rotator with an "echo" effect.


JCC Greenwich

JCC Greenwich website

The JCC Greenwich website makes great use of fixed navigation and a monochromatic color palette.
