The Meaning Behind Our Logo
From the JCC Oriental Crane Project: In Japan, the crane is a mystical creature and is believed to live for a thousand years. As a result, it represents good fortune and longevity and is called the “bird of happiness”. It has also become a symbol of hope and healing during challenging times.
The origami crane symbolizes our ability to design lives of joy and well-being.
