Family Programming

The JCC offers many programs throughout the year designed to bring families together with fun-filled, educational activities for all ages. Ta'am Ha'Ona, "the Essence of the Season," features family activities that relate to Jewish holidays and often include food and fun for all. Speaking of FUN, the J is also the top spot for great Birthday Parties. Our staff will get all the supplies, plan all the activities, and watch all the kids - you just gotta sign up! Be sure to check this page frequently for upcoming events for the whole family!

STARZ Presents Annie, JR | Dec. 2-3
With equal measures of pluck and positivity, little orphan Annie charms everyone's hearts despite a next-to-nothing start in 1930s New York City. Annie is determined to find the parents who abandoned her years ago on the doorstep of an orphanage run by the cruel Miss Hannigan. Annie eventually foils Miss Hannigan's evil machinations, finding a new home and family in billionaire Oliver Warbucks, his personal secretary, Grace Farrell, and a lovable mutt named Sandy.

NOVA Presents Disney's Sleeping Beauty KIDS | Dec. 9-10
It's Princess Aurora's sixteenth birthday, and three fairies – Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather – must use their magic to save her from the spell of the evil sorceress, Maleficent! The fairies ensure that Aurora only falls into a deep sleep that can be ended with a kiss from her betrothed, Prince Phillip. To prevent Phillip from rescuing Aurora, Maleficent kidnaps and imprisons him. The good fairies are the last hope to free Phillip so that he can awaken Aurora.

Performances will be SA, Dec. 9 @ 7pm and SU, Dec. 10 @ 2pm in the Holzman Auditorium. Tickets not currently available for purchase.
