YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- Saying that increased competition and rising economic challenges have made it impossible to remain viable, the Rosenthal JCC has announced that it plans to close three of its locations.

After 36 years, the organization will close the doors of its three northern Westchester locations on June 30, according to a statement released Thursday, by JCC President Jessica Morganthal and Executive Director Ellie Aronowitz.

“We are proud to have instilled Jewish values and a love of learning; fostered meaningful connections with Israel; and cultivated volunteerism both within and beyond Northern Westchester," the statement said.

The statement went on to say that they are thankful for the support of the community and their founder, Lois Rosenthal and others.

The organization's main branch is in Pleasantville; with a second location in Yorktown Height, in addition to several camps.
