Girls on the Run® @ the Katz JCC
The Katz JCC in partnership with Cherry Hill Township Mayor’s Wellness Campaign looks to help boost the confidence and self-image of young girls in South Jersey through “Girls on the Run” designed for girls aged 8 to 11. Designed to allow every girl to recognize her inner strength, the curriculum inspires participants to encourage friendship, while offering discussion points that include emotional health, nutrition, positive attitude and personal values through coach led discussion and running games. The 10-week program culminates in a celebratory 5K Run.

JCC Maccabi Games®
This awesome Teen program provides a memorable experience, strengthens ties to ones Jewish heritage, values, and community, and provides a connection to Israel. From a few hundred kids in Memphis in 1982, the JCC Maccabi Games have grown to several thousand at multiple sites competing in 14 different team and individual sports. The emphasis is on bringing Jewish youth together so they can explore their Jewish identities, act on their Jewish values, and revel in their Jewish diversity.
The Katz JCC successfully hosted the Maccabi Games in the summer of 2014. We welcomed over 1,200 Jewish teens from all over North America, Mexico, Great Britain, Australia, and Israel to our community for a week filled with athletic competitions and social activities held at different venues throughout Southern NJ. We created lasting memories that are still cherished by everyone that participated.
Please take the time to get involved and join our team and to catch the spirit of the JCC Maccabi Games.
