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.

Join us for our coziest community Hanukkah celebration yet! Put on your pjs and enjoy great music from folk duo Josh & Chava, a Hanukkah story from PJ Library, food trucks (Napkin Friends and Delfino’s Pizza), Krispy Kreme doughnuts, make-your-own nightlight and other festive arts and crafts, olive oil press with Chabad, a menorah lighting and Havdalah, and more!
We’re collecting donations of new and gently used pajamas (size 2T-12) for Amara, an organization that works to ensure every child in foster care has the love and support of a committed family as quickly as possible and for as long as the child needs. Please help us out!

From meeting up at cool new restaurants to pajama Shabbats around town, the J’s Shabbat dinners are the place to be. Details to come.
