Family Programs & Events
The Katz JCC is home to year-round educational, social and engaging programs and events that the entire family can enjoy! We host Jewish holiday celebrations throughout the year including our annual family Chanukah Celebration, Purim Carnival and Passover Seders.
We also host several annual family fun activities that include Kidsland, Baby & Toddler Expo, Fall Festival at JCC Camps at Medford, Pet Expo at the J, Sussman 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament, and much more!
On the first Friday and Saturday of each month (September-June), our Tot Shabbat (Fridays 10:30-11:15am) and Shabbat Shabang (Saturdays 11am-12:15pm) celebrations are a great way for families with young children to spend time together, meet new friends and celebrate Shabbat. Both programs are free and open to the community.
