Your J is the regions premiere destination for Jewish arts & culture and the Pioneer…
During the pandemic, we reached out to members to highlight them and keep the community together … even if we’re apart. Below are some responses and photos submitted by our amazing members!
Janice Greenberg – “I really miss my 6:00 am spin class – but our fearless leader Doug, Rosemarie Rice, and I just had a Zoom virtual meeting so we could talk and check-in!”
The Killen’s – (Venesa, Drew, Bryn, and Sutton) – “The kids keep asking for Mrs. Tina, Mrs. Katie, Mrs. Kim, Mrs. Megan, Mrs. Beth, Mr. Rusty. They also keep asking if they are going to soccer! They just have so much fun with everyone there. They both have learned a lot from all of the instructors”.
Nicole Collins – “We all miss using the fitness center, the pool, seeing friends, attending events, and having that ‘let’s meet at the J’ part of our days. We wish everyone health, and are really looking forward to when the J is again a space to meet in person!”
The Zolotor’s – (Jami, Andrew, Stephanie, Alexandra, and Casey Zolotor) – “We miss going to the fitness center and getting lunch at Aroma Cafe @ Vi’s Coffee Corner!”
The Bertuzzi’s – (Matthew, Ally, & Noam) – “We miss being able to share the JCC facilities and staff with our new son. He is ready to go swimming and be a 3rd generation Cuda!”
The Seeley’s – (Kristin, Earlon, Jenny, Emme, and Nora) – “That’s easy – the people.” Because she explains, “from Judy in the lobby to the trainers in the gym to the fellow members whom I consider friends, they create an overwhelming sense of community and I miss that connection.”
Teresa Murphy – “Personally, I have missed the gym the most. The fitness staff has done a great job making exercise possible from home and the outdoor classes have been fantastic! The J has done a great job keeping us connected even though we are apart.”
The Kiernan’s – (Kim & Gerard) – “It’s been great to be back at the JCC. I feel like I’m at home. I missed the camaraderie of the JCC. Getting back into a routine at the JCC makes life appear to be more normal as life used to be.”
