For the JCC to continue to operate, we need your ongoing support. Membership dues will continue to be billed during the closure and we hope you are able to maintain your membership. You can also consider an unused membership as a donation to the JCC. If those are not options, we can freeze your membership and your membership and automatically re-activate when the facility reopens. Email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

For insurance-based members, the JCC only receives reimbursement from health insurance providers when you swipe into the JCC. This means that during the shutdown, the JCC will not receive any revenue from insurance providers. We hope that as committed insurance-based members, you will consider making a donation of at least $48 a month (the maximum monthly insurance reimbursement) to help us continue operations. To make a monthly donation click on the link at the top of the page.

Program/Class Registration and Event Tickets

Most cancelled programs and events are being rescheduled and your payments will be honored on the new dates. If an event is not rescheduled, you will receive a JCC credit and can apply these prepaid amounts to other JCC programs, events or services. We would be very grateful if you would consider donating all or part of these prepayments to the JCC.
