Center Celebration

"The J is Jazzed" for Center Celebration 2017! This year's event will showcase the beautifully expanded Uptown JCC facilities, including our new Goldring Woldenberg Sports and Wellness Complex and the Oscar J Tolmas Aquatics Complex.  

Tour the new facilities and join us poolside for cocktails as we celebrate with music by popular local brass ensemble The Soul Rebels. An open bar, signature drink and buffet dinner round out this delightful evening. Culinary delights are being provided by James Beard award-winning restaurant Shaya, and Rimon, the new restaurant from acclaimed Chef Daniel Esses.

The Patron Party at the St. Charles Avenue home
of Walton and Jeffrey Goldring has SOLD OUT.

No Sukkah? No Problem!


With temperatures in the 90s, it is easy to forget that fall is here. Fortunately, we have the holiday of Sukkot to remind us that the harvest season has begun. 



New Recipes for the New Year

As Rosh Hashanah approaches, all we can think about are apples and honey!

Rosh Hashanah - “head of the year”- commemorates the creation of the world. Traditionally, apples and honey are eaten to represent our hope for a sweet year of health and peace. Dipping apples in honey is delicious, and here are few creative recipe suggestions to help kick this duo up a notch.


National Coloring Book Day

We love to celebrate here at the JCC, and we also look for any opportunity to be creative. Join us for a coloring break in The Nosh of the Uptown JCC for National Coloring Book Day on August 2. We’ll have a table with crayons and JCC-themed coloring sheets. Can’t make it to the JCC? Download and print our coloring sheets. We’d love to see your artwork, so be sure to tag us and use hashtag #nojcc on social media!


Finding Your Fit Foods

Creating a lifestyle, rather than a diet, will give you the flexibility to make healthy choices while still enjoying what you eat. Sometimes the hardest part about eating healthfully is simply knowing what will taste good without packing on the pounds. Check out some of the healthy recipes recommended by Metairie Wellness Director Alexis Boudreau to get started and get cooking!
