Jewish Life & Holiday Celebrations
Embrace Jewish life and holiday celebrations with your family and friends at the Katz JCC. We offer year round holiday celebrations that we designed for families of all ages, cultures and faiths! At the J, we hold a variety of programs centered around various Jewish holidays that include Sukkot, Chanukah, Purim, Passover as well as weekly Shabbat celebrations.
Jewish traditions, values and culture are infused into everyday life at the J from infants to older adults. On a Friday morning you might see our Sari Isdaner Early Childhood Center students and teachers enjoying Shabbat songs together in the lobby, during Chanukah you can join us for our menorah lighting each night, purchase a challah during our challah sale for your next Shabbat dinner or enjoy a special holiday treat!

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.
Our older adults celebrate Shabbat every Friday at noon during our Adult Meal Program. Each celebration includes lighting of the candles and songs followed by a delicious traditional kosher Shabbat meal.
