TRADITIONS ON WHEELS®:

Lets celebrate our Jewish traditions together! This charming pushcart program is licensed to the JCC and provides the “vehicle” for enjoyable, informal, interactive, multi sensory activities. The pushcart will visit our lobby and a variety of departments throughout the year, presenting programs for High Holidays, Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Hanukkah and Shabbat. (In the winter and spring, it will provide enriching programs for Tu B’Shevat, Purim, Passover, Yom Ha’atzmaut and Shavuot.) Components may include traditional food, music, background information, useful handouts, activities for adults and children, suggestions for celebrating the holidays as a community or at home, and much more. There is no charge for these programs. Watch for information in the JCC CenterNews throughout the year, and plan to join us!

SHABBAT SHALOM:

Delicious, kosher Shabbat challah is available every Friday from September through mid-June, sponsored by the Early Childhood Department.

The braided challah is the Jewish Sabbath-and holiday-bread. Challah is made in various sizes and shapes, all of which have a meaning. Braided ones, which may have three, four, or six strands, are the most common, and because they look like arms intertwined, symbolize love. Three braids symbolize truth, peace and justice.
