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!
