Tune In to Virtual SJCC & SJCC TV

We miss seeing you all at the J every day! We know this community extends far beyond the walls of the J, and as we navigate these unusual times together (yet socially distant), we want to offer ways you can stay connected to the J — even when you’re at home.

We’re excited to launch two ways to engage with the J community: Virtual SJCC and SJCC TV.

Virtual SJCC
Here you’ll find ways to interact with friends near and far. Take a class, learn a new craft, have an online personal training session, join J kids for online learning, meet with friends for community conversations, and more. This area features resources both from our J and JCCs and organizations around the country. Here are a couple of things already on the schedule:

SJCC TV
On SJCC TV you can watch your favorite Arts + Ideas performances, binge our digital film fest, get to know your community through our Faces of the J series, listen to your favorite books, and much more. Check these features out:

  • Arts + Ideas On Demand
  • Thought Leaders + Speakers
  • SJCC’s Jessica Ost speaking about the GIFT program on Limmudcast
  • Faces of the J Video Series: What’s Your Talent?

We’ll add content to these pages in the coming weeks, so check back often for new activities, classes, and entertainment to keep your family engaged, entertained, and connected.

SJCC to Close Starting March 16

SJCC community,

As we continue to watch and learn more about the global threat of COVID-19, we have decided to completely close the Stroum Jewish Community Center as of 7:00 pm today, Sunday, March 15, 2020. It’s been an agonizing decision, yet as the situation evolves, it’s increasingly important that we do everything we can to ‘flatten the curve’; which means closing our facility to public use.

At this point, we anticipate this closure to last until April 24, 2020, though we will do our best to open as soon as it’s safe and possible to do so.

We will be open tomorrow, Monday, March 16, 2020, from 7:30 am – 10:00 am and again from 3:30 pm – 6:00 pm for members to come in to collect any personal belongings you may have in our locker rooms that you will need during this time. 

We love seeing your faces at the SJCC regularly, and we also know the relationships that connect and fortify the SJCC community transcend the walls of this building. Our committed team is already working to create programs that will continue to connect us during these unusual times. We will send emails with updates on program and content availability and also invite you to follow us on social media and at sjcc.org for the latest information.

Starting next week, we will be in touch weekly to share any available updates and a preview of the coming week.

Knowing that the next steps are critical to our members, staff, broad community, and our mission, we are unable to refund March fees and dues. We are working with our Board of Directors to actively evaluate how the closure of our building affects membership dues and program and ticketing fees over a longer period of time. We promise to share an update on those topics as soon as a responsible and clear decision has been made. We thank the community for your continued support and patience as we assess a strong path forward. Our goal is to reopen as soon as possible with personal, communal, and agency health and strength. 

Thank you for always supporting the team here at the SJCC. We don’t plan to be strangers during this unusual time and we invite you to email info@sjcc.org if you have questions and/or need to request specific services and/or support. You can also call 206-232-7115, and dial extension 222. All voice mails will be returned within one business day. Please visit our website for links to Public Health resources and to view a current list of SJCC updates.

One of the SJCC’s core values is Shmirat haNefesh v’haGuf, which means taking care of oneself, body and soul. In the coming weeks, please take care of yourself and those you hold close. 

B’Shalom (In peace),
Oren Nissim & Amy Lavin
