JCC stands for Jewish Community Center, but religion isn't the sole focus at the JCC of Greater New Haven. The center also aims to facilitate fun, whether through summer camps for kids or Zumba classes for adults, providing a warm, friendly atmosphere for health, thought, learning and values. Below are four highlights of the center's extensive programming:
The summer camps. While school is out, kids hike miles of trails, create quirky crafts, and learn to swim.
The group exercise classes. These range from core-strengthening Pilates to dance-inspired Zumba classes.
The PJ Library program. Open to kids ages six months to eight years, this program mails youngsters and their parents a monthly array of age-appropriate Jewish literature and music.
The Beckerman Lecture Series. Running April-June
