When Joe was growing up in Portland in the 50's, he spent much of his time at the Jewish Community Center, or JCC. Serving as a hub of the local Jewish community, the JCC was where kids came to learn, parents came to socialize, and good times were had by all. Now, there's a brand new center, now going by the name Jewish Community Alliance, opening on 1342 Congress Street. The new and improved JCA serves to enhance and promote Jewish Life and continuity locally, in Israel & throughout the world by providing & supporting diverse programs & services, including such programming as a preschool, summer day camp, after-school program, health and fitness classes, and adult education courses.
The JCA is hosting the Grand Opening of their new location on Sunday, September 10th, from 2-4:30pm. This fun event will feature lawn games, food, music, face painting, and plenty of other fun for the whole family. Joe hopes you consider attending this fun community event to celebrate an important local organization.
