Holiday & Community Events

Throughout the year, the JCC holds holiday celebrations and commemorative events that are open to the entire community.

ADLOYADAH PURIM CARNIVAL

Bring the entire family for a fun-filled afternoon of food, music, games, and activities for all ages. The Human Hamster Balls and giant slide are back, as are everyone's favorite inflatables. Come enjoy delicious Middle Eastern delicacies and nosh on New York-style deli items. Grab a snowball or popcorn, and do not forget to take home a bag of the homemade hamantashen. Admission to the carnival is free and open to the community. A children's All Day Play Pass is $12, or $10 with a donation of nonperishable items for the Broadmoor Food Pantry.

YOM HA'SHOAH | Sunday, April 19, 2020 - POSTPONED

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.

YOM HA'ATZMAUT | April 28, 2020 -  POSTPONED

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 HaAtzmaut gives the JCC the opportunity to celebrate Israel's Independence Day with the entire community and educate the public on the Jewish Homeland.

CHANUKAH CELEBRATION | TBD

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 The LeeVees, David Broza and Craig Taubman, to acapella groups SIX13 and theMaccabeats. All ages enjoy the festive celebration and delicious Chanukah treats.
