We are back and better than ever with the 2021 CHEERS Block Party, a celebration of the J’s Kehillah (Special Needs) Department. What do we have to celebrate? Kehillah has grown to be one of the area’s leading adaptive and inclusive programs, and the fun will take place here at our very own J!

What’s there to look forward to? A lot – truly, fun for all ages! Guests are invited to bring lawn chairs and a blanket to spread out and enjoy a fun afternoon with friends and family. There will be a wide variety of food trucks, including some favorites from our 2018 Block Party such as Holyoke Hummus and BATCH Ice Cream. Mix in a DJ, games and activities for ALL ages and abilities, and you’re sure to have a great time!

The event is open to the entire community, and interested guests will have the option to learn more about Kehillah’s offerings and how they or their families might benefit. In addition, there will be a number of special games and giving opportunities throughout the event to help raise funds for Kehillah programs.

In 2018, the CHEERS Block Party event engaged more than 270 people and raised more than $20,000, allowing people of all ages and ability levels to enjoy activities like the J’s fully-inclusive summer camp, adaptive aquatics lessons, and more! Please join us in this celebration to help ensure that Kehillah programs can continue to serve the diverse needs of our entire community.
