Community Celebrations

Throughout the year, the J invites the community to join us for holiday celebrations.

Hundreds of people dress up and play at our Purim Carnival and celebrate Hanukkah with us every year. We also have a Sukkot dinner in the Kesher Community Garden every fall, community Hanukkah candle lightings in the winter, and family Passover Seders in the spring, and more.

On select Fridays—at the J and in Ballard and Issaquah—newborns, babies, toddlers, and their parents are welcome to join friends for Tot Shabbat with songs and challah. During the summer, you can join in joyous Shabbat celebrations with the entire SJCC Summer Camp.
