Events

On December 5, 2016 the JCC has experienced a devastating fire which has left the building closed for expected 6-12 months. As we work to rebuild 360 Amity Rd. we are constantly reminded by our members that the JCC is far more than a building - it is a community. Our members, our friends, and organizational partners have shown tremendous amount of love and support in our path to recovery. We are forever grateful for our community. Please support us by patronizing our enriching events.
