Family Programs

FAMILY PROGRAMS

The Edlavitch DCJCC FAMILY PROGRAMS are designed with your family in mind. We merge high quality experiential activities with an informal camp-like atmosphere. Dedicated to serving and supporting our diverse community, we create safe space to explore Jewish values amidst the messy, joyful chaos that is raising kids in an urban environment in the modern world. Organized around the Jewish calendar and Shabbat we offer: monthly celebrations, pool parties, carnivals, story time and other kid friendly activities for children aged 2-8. All families are welcome—you don’t have to be Jewish to find a home at the EDCJCC.
