Boulder JCC Will Reopen Tuesday

Jonathan Lev and Harris Faberman give the thumbs-up outside of the JCC Monday.

A team of disaster relief, water mitigation and mold specialists toured the Boulder JCC with Executive Director Jonathan Lev, Facilities Manager Jerry Pinsker, and Boulder JCC Board Member Harris Faberman. The team confirmed that the JCC sustained very minor damage from the rain consisting of minor roof leaks. Based on this assessment, it is our plan to open the building Tuesday morning, September 17th, at 9:00 am.

In an effort to help our community during this difficult time, we are offering the following free programming:

Open Tumble

We understand that Boulder Valley School District and St. Vrain Schools remain closed. We want to invite families who have children ages 5 and under to come use the Tumbling Room from 2:30-4:00 pm free of charge. Click here for information on our Tumbling Room.

Sukkot Program

For those individuals and families who would like to gather as a community to celebrate the holiday of Sukkot which begins on Wednesday night, the JCC will offer a free program in our gym Tuesday from 4:00- 6:00 pm. This program replaces the program originally scheduled to take place at Red Wagon Farm in Longmont. We invite families with children of all ages to join us for art projects, music, and fun! For anyone who is interested, you may bring a picnic dinner (vegetarian and nut-free, please) and join others in our community for reflecting on the past week, bringing some joy into one another’s lives, and getting out of your houses!   If you are planning to attend this Sukkot program, you should email Shari Blake Schnee at shari@boulderjcc.org with the number of children and adults who are planning to come.

School Day Out

We are partnering with Chabad at CU Boulder in offering a School Day Out Program on Wednesday from 9:15 am to 1:15 pm at the JCC.  We will have some fun activities for the kids (ages Kindergarten – 5th grade) and we will serve Kosher pizza for lunch (thanks to a donor from Chabad at CU).   Please register here to secure a spot for your child.

PLEASE NOTE: We are unable to take drop-ins for this program.

Additional Resources

We know there are many in our community who are still suffering. Again, we encourage you to utilize the resources that are posted on our website.

New Support Available – Dehumidifiers, Fans, Pumps, Etc.

The Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado has graciously donated pumps, fans, dehumidifiers, or any other equipment to families that need them for their flooded homes. Please email flood@jewishcu.com if you need to borrow any of the above items.

Again, thanks so much for your support. We are grateful that we can resume serving the community tomorrow and hope that this can help bring about a little bit of normalcy to you and your families.

Shana tova (Happy New Year and here’s hoping to see sunny skies tomorrow!)
