Dear Friedman JCC Member,

In this time of uncertainty, we are all looking for a bit of light—a connection, a friend that we can rely on, a reprieve and some hint of a routine. At the JCC, we are more committed than ever to shining a light of hope into our community. We want you to know that your JCC is here for you.

Your Virtual JCC community is a place where you can continue to depend on us for fitness opportunities, wellness advice, activities for children and even cooking classes, all designed to keep you and your family healthy and entertained. Stay connected with us at www.friedmanjcc.org

If you have young children, tune in for virtual classes in cooking, music, arts and crafts and more!

We are adding to our online offerings each week, so be sure to let us know what you would like to see, as your JCC is just a click away at www.friedmanjcc.org. Please help us so we can be here for you, with the staff, programming and activities you have come to depend on.

Your membership dues and support ensure that we can continue to operate and re-open with the activities and programs that you have come to count on.
Share our emails and social media content with your friends so that they can enjoy our virtual activities as well.
Consider a donation to The Jewish Community Alliance of Northeastern Pennsylvania. By supporting the JCA of NEPA, you are helping to support the Friedman JCC as we serve vulnerable populations throughout our community. Even $5 or $10 can make a difference.  It’s easy to contribute online at www.friedmanjcc.org/give.

Together, we can all be the light in this time of darkness. We will get through this and come together to celebrate and share brighter days soon. Thank you for your continued support. Be Safe! Be Healthy!
