Coming Up at The Roth Family JCC via the Internet


April 10, 2020

The Roth Family JCC is announcing even more ways to stay connected and CEO Keith Dvorchik is helping the Jewish community stick together via his e-mail newsletters, which Heritage also posts for those who aren’t members of the JCC.

As we come to the end of March, COVID-19 remains foremost in our minds. With the passage of the Paycheck Protection Act on March 27, there is a lot to learn and share with our agencies, organizations and synagogues. And as the Federation continues to work on a remote basis for the community, there are many exciting things to share for the week ahead.

For families

Each day, our partnership with PJ Library brings family engagement programming into your home. You can visit PJ Library’s website to see all the activities they provide. All activities are recorded, so you can access them on your own schedule.

• 11a.m. Storytime

• 12 p.m. Virtual Fieldtrip

• 1 p.m. Storytime

• 3 p.m. Craft-along

• 3:30 p.m. Craft-along

• 4 p.m. Storytime

Keeping fit at home

If you’re into fitness, you no doubt are missing your regular visits to the gym. We have two exciting new options for you:

• Join Monique Eyal for her Monique By the Lake fitness programs twice a day.

• Bethanne Weiss will be leading a Virtual Walk on Tuesday and Thursday at 9 a.m.—join her to “move your assets.”

• Thanks to a relationship with The Roth Family JCC, Life Fitness has enabled its Digital Coach platform at no cost, providing a workout of the day to help you stay active.

Work out your brain, too

• If you are interested in learning a little more about Judaism and Jewish life, MyJewishLearning.com has daily livestreams and online content (and they will be adding content from our Federation soon).

Food Cart from the Heart

As I discussed in a recent update, we are preparing to launch Food Cart from the Heart, a program that enables us to purchase groceries for people who can’t afford them. This program is fully driven by donations from the community, so please help out if you can by giving today!

I encourage you to keep an eye on the Federation’s home page for even more worthwhile virtual activities in the days and weeks ahead. Even though we are forced to physically isolate ourselves from others, we don’t have to isolate ourselves from our community. Enjoy the many things your Jewish Federation and Jewish community are providing for you.

Stay safe!

Keith Dvorchik,

Executive Director
