Coronavirus/COVID-19 Update

Dear JCC Community,

The safety and well-being of our members, children, staff, and community is our highest priority. Throughout the past week, we have kept you updated with actions we have taken to help protect your health, and we have worked diligently to keep the JCC’s doors open. Unfortunately, the scope of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic now requires us to take a much more significant measure.

We have made the difficult decision to close The Roth Family Jewish Community Center for two weeks, effective Monday, March 16. Our current plan is to reopen at 6am on Monday, March 30. We are following the lead of the Florida Department of Education, which announced late Friday that all state schools will close for one additional week beyond spring break (returning March 30 in Orange County).

On this page, you will find resources, updates, and event cancellation information related to Coronavirus/COVID-19.

Thank you for working with us to maintain the health and safety of our JCC community.

Keith Dvorchik
Chief Executive Officer

Camp J's All American Camper Challenge

Being stuck at home is no fun. So we decided to bring some Camp J spirit to you and your camper by presenting the first-ever Camp J All-American Camper Challenge! Over the next few weeks, we're bringing the best of Camp J to you on our Camp J Facebook page. If your camper can complete all of the daily challenges, they will be named a Camp J All-American Camper and receive a special award! Visit the Camp J Facebook page AND "like" the page to get started.

#LightTheNight on social media

As we welcome Shabbat, a day of rest, tomorrow, we will begin so by lighting Shabbat candles just like every other week. The candles we light this week, though, are not only for Shabbat; they symbolize light in a unique time of darkness. Join us in lighting up the night by posting pictures of your Shabbat candles, or any candles, using the hashtags #LightTheNight and #StayHome. Let's see the beauty, hope, and optimism shine through our newsfeeds, our homes, and our communities.  


Cancellations and Closings
