We’ve made the difficult decision to temporarily close our two JCC locations – the Bryan Glazer Family JCC and the JCC on the Cohn Campus. It’s important to note that we are not aware of any individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 in our JCC community. This includes our preschools at the JCC on the Cohn Campus and at Congregation Rodeph Sholom, as well as our afterschool programs at both JCCs. These closures will begin at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, March 17th and go through, at least, March 29th. This situation continues to be fluid, so the end of the closure could change and we will keep you apprised as decisions are made. For members who would like to continue their fitness routine at home, we offer the following so you can continue to be physically active at home:
Personal trainers are here for you. We want to ensure your workouts do not skip a beat. As such, we are offering live video PT via FaceTime, Facebook messenger, Skype or other video conference tools. Let your trainer know if you would like to utilize your PT sessions live, at home.

During this process, we’re actively reviewing how the closure of our buildings affects program related fees, enrollment expenses and membership dues. We’re continuing to pay all of our staff their salaries and benefits as well as our regular scheduled hourly employees for at least the next two weeks and they’ll be working during that period, either in one of our buildings or remotely.
We are hopeful that our members will continue to support the JCC in all ways possible during this period; in this way, we can ensure that our organization can serve our community for years to come.
Together, let's commit to doing all that we can to reach out and assist one another. It is the reason why our community is so special. Please let us know how we can help you. We plan to share additional updates periodically. As difficult as this decision has been, we are most grateful for your support.
Please stay safe.
