February 15, 2016

The euphoria from the Super Bowl victory is slowly subsiding and we’ve been non-stop working to ramp up for an amazing last push of programs, fitness classes and vacation camp offerings for the remainder of Winter. Especially hard at work has been our Community Engagement team who has some very exciting programming and events coming up very soon. From Date Night and Pride Night at the Denver Jewish Film Festival (now – February 21) to organizing an upcoming event for LGBTQ Lobby Day. See below to check out all of the other great things happening in the upcoming weeks at the J.

We can’t wait to see you soon!

ECC Phase 1 Construction is Underway!

Pottery Studio Updates

The old pottery studio and ceramics studio have been moved and the ECC classrooms are on the way. During the next couple of weeks it will be noisier than usual. We appreciate your patience. Be sure to check out the new pottery studio (you can follow the signs in the building to the new location) and come to one of our great ceramics classes, as they have already begun teaching in this new space.

Fitness Center Updates

The light dome above the stairs to the fitness floor was refurbished over the weekend. Questions about the construction? Email constructioninfo@jccdenver.org.
