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 Under the Stars 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—on both our Mercer Island and Seattle campuses—newborns, babies, toddlers, and their parents are welcome to join friends for Tot Shabbat with songs and challah. During the summer, families are encouraged to join their kids as they celebrate Shabbat with the entire SJCC Summer Camp.
