December 28, 2015



As 2015 comes to an end, what are you looking ahead to for 2016? Are you making resolutions? We have plenty going on at The J to help you. Want to learn a new skill or maybe just knock something off your bucket list, we are offering a SCUBA certification class. Do you want to start a workout program? We have several personal trainers that can help get you on track whether your goals are weight, sport or health related. At The J, we are very excited for 2016 and look forward to experiencing it with you.

Need to know what our holiday hours are? You can find them here.



Extended Saturday Hours

Have you heard?! Beginning on January 9, 2016 the JCC Fitness, Tennis and Aquatics facilities will be open on Saturday mornings at 7:00 am. As part of the change, new fitness classes will also be offered.



Get Your SCUBA Certification

Ever wanted to learn to SCUBA? Here’s your chance! We have partnered with Planet SCUBA to provide this class which is the first step in becoming a certified SCUBA diver. You will learn all about Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus in a controlled and safe environment. Each day of the two day class will be partially in classroom learning and partially swimming with the SCUBA equipment. Books, handouts, and diving supplies are all included. Once class is complete, open water certification must be completed within one year. This is normally completed on a tropical paradise vacation, but can also be completed more locally. The class will be instructed by a certified instructor from Planet SCUBA dive shop.

Don’t wait! Only seven registration spots remain.

Designed to connect Jewish teens to one another and to feel part of K’lal Israel – the greater Jewish people and their Jewish homeland, the Games serve as a transformative Jewish experience for today’s teens.
