Shabbat

Katz JCC Jewish Holiday Celebrations

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.

Chanukah

Each year we hold an event the entire community is welcome to attend.  In 2019, we had a Make It, Take It, Fry It, Try IT event, that took place in December. This event was ideal for families with children 5-12 years old.  We had a generous event sponsor, The Pines at Voorhees.  Plans for 2020 are still under way.

Sukkot 

Celebrate Sukkot with us!  Enjoy pizza, sing songs, enjoy music, learn about this fall holiday and play in our beautiful JCC Sukkah.

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!
