SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- The JCC of Mid-Westchester is welcoming the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur with an invitation to join the Scarsdale community in an ongoing celebration of Jewish arts and culture.
Thousands of people come to the JCC each year to learn new skills, enrich their lives, and create meaningful connections, according to Executive Director Karen Kolodny.
The center’s programs reach everyone from young children who swim in its pool or attend its nursery school, to teen volunteers who work with those with special needs, to seniors who just want to drop in for a cup of coffee with good friends, according to a press release.
In wishing everyone “a happy, healthy new year,” Kolodny said the JCC is open to anyone who wants to take a class, join a group, or find an opportunity to volunteer.
Kolodny also reached out for help in bringing “joy to others at this time of renewal and celebration.”
Fees that the center charges for its many programs are “simply not enough to cover the extensive community programming that we offer,” Kolodny said.
Donating to the center will, Kolodny said, help it “provide scholarships to those in our community who find themselves falling on hard times, offer programs for our aging population, and bringing arts and culture to our community.”
“Make it a sweet year for the JCC and donate to your community center,” she concluded in the press release.
