Staenberg Kooper Fellman Campus

Staenberg Kooper Fellman Campus Transformation Project

We are excited to announce our major campus renovation is taking place! In order to create an engaging campus that meets the needs of its 21st century visitors, we are updating spaces that need remodeling, re-thinking spaces that could be better utilized, and matching the facility with the modern programming our staff is developing. Over the next several months you can expect to see work happening throughout the Staenberg Omaha JCC. Each campus renovation is done in accordance with our mission of building and maintaining a vibrant Jewish community, not only for today but for generations to come. We thank you for your patience during this time.
If you have any questions please e-mail Alan Potash at or Mark Martin at
Please remember all dates listed are tentative and subject to change.




Main Fitness Center Entrance Temporarily Closed

The main entrance (Member Services entrance) to the Phil Sokolof Fitness Center is now temporarily closed for renovation work to the Member Services Desk. This temporary closure is estimated to last until late December. During this time, all individuals coming to our facility MUST enter through the South Entrance/Entrance 1. The South Entrance/Entrance 1 is on the southwest area of campus (indicated on map). This will be the only access point to the facility. All members and visitors should use the parking lot closest to this entrance. Watch the video at right for more information.

Members must bring their Membership ID cards with them in order to access our facility. This card will need to be scanned inside the vestibule of Entrance 1. Upon scanning your card, the door will unlock and you can enter the JCC. Once inside, we will have signage and staff available to help you navigate to your desired destination. Until this project is complete, men and women will take separate routes to access to the lower level. Men will cut through the current men’s locker room and women will cut through the current women’s locker room. For our members needing elevator assistance, we are still able to accommodate you! Please contact member services at (402) 334-6426 for more details. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are confident that you will love the improvements coming to the Member Services entrance. If you have any questions, please contact us at (402) 334-6426. Thank you for your patience as we enter the final stretch of our campus renovation.
