Throughout the year, the JCC holds holiday celebrations and commemorative events that are open to the entire community.
ADLOYADAH PURIM CARNIVAL
The JCC celebrates Purim with a carnival called Adloyadah. Adloyadah celebrates Jewish survival and is similar to celebrations held in Israel. Open to the entire community, the JCC is transformed into a carnival complete with rides, music, Israeli food, hamantashen (special Purim treats), and New Orleans snowballs. Wear a costume, eat some delicious food, enjoy the music and have a blast!
Local educators and Holocaust survivors to come together to create a program and memorial service designed to educate the public about the horror of the Nazi regime and to teach the importance of tolerance. Holocaust survivors take a leading role in planning the Yom Ha'shoah Memorial Program and providing living testimony about their own experiences in an effort to ensure that such crimes are never repeated.
Celebrate Israel’s Birthday with music, folk dancing, and Israeli food. This JCC event, in cooperation with local synagogues and Jewish organizations, keeps growing and changing — just like Israel itself. In past years, activities have ranged from an Israeli version of Jeopardy to a symbolic tour of Israel that included Bedouin tents and a climbing wall topped by the mountain citadel of Massada. Yom Ha’Atzmaut gives the JCC the opportunity to celebrate Israel’s Independence Day with the entire community and educate the public on the Jewish Homeland.
Our annual Chanukah Celebration always features a fun, family-friendly concert by a popular Jewish artist or musical group. Past events have featured musicians as varied as David Broza and Craig Taubman to a cappella groups SIX13 and the Maccabeats. All ages enjoy the festive celebration and delicious Chanukah treats.
