Rosh Hashanah greetings from the two leaders

The Roth Family JCC is growing and changing

In a year of transition and growth, more and more people are realizing that The Roth Family Jewish Community Center is the ideal place for them to live up® to their aspirations. Our J University after school program has its highest enrollment in five years. Camp J also grew for the fourth summer in a row. In addition, our award-winning Richard S. Adler Early Childhood Learning Center graduated FOUR pre-kindergarten classes full of happy, smiling faces.  

We also saw improvements in our sports and fitness programs, including major renovations to our gymnasium in memory of our longtime friend Charles Schwartz, our first tennis tournament honoring JCC member in perpetuity and past president Jodi Krinker, and new flat-screen televisions in our fitness center thanks to the Homburger Jacobs family. We also expanded new technology in the preschool, thanks to the continued support of the Adler family, so that every classroom has an iPad and a new app that allows teachers to communicate more seamlessly with parents. If you haven't been by lately, I invite you to reach out to us for a personal tour to see how we can be a part of your journey towards a healthier you.  

It's been a journey for me this year as well, serving for seven months as the J's interim executive director. As a former participant in our early childhood, camp, and after school programs, it's been an honor and a privilege. I look forward to working with Keith Dvorchik, our new CEO, to continue growing and expanding the JCC's engagement of the Jewish community.

Here's to a happy and healthy new year!

In this new year, what do you want our JCC to offer?

As we start the new year with Rosh Hashanah, I am excited to start a new chapter in my career as the CEO of The Roth Family JCC of Orlando. My 20-year career in the Jewish community has been all about community and I can think of no better place to work than The Roth Family JCC.

From our vibrant early childhood program to our amazing summer camp offerings, the J is a place for fun and learning for children of all ages. It's a place for families of all ages.

Keith Dvorchik, Incoming Chief Executive Officer

I'm excited about the things we can offer to the community. From learning to social interactions, athletics to cultural arts, the future is bright with opportunities and options. I hope that you will share with me the things you love about the JCC and the things you wish the JCC was able to offer. I want to hear from you about what you want your JCC to be and work together to find ways to make our dreams become reality. Together, our dreams can become reality.

This Rosh Hashanah marks a new year for the Jewish people, a new year for the JCC, and a new year for the Dvorchik family. It's going to be an exciting year, and I invite you to share your dreams so that together we can make The Roth Family JCC a model for the rest of the country.

-Keith Dvorchik, Incoming Chief Executive Officer
