Atid: Future

Atid is a giving circle for the JCC’s most engaged friends, who connect to the JCC in a deep and meaningful way with an elevated level of involvement. Atid’s members collaborate to pool funds and leverage their individual gifts of $1,800 or more through a group allocations process that impacts the JCC where it is needed most. Members gain greater insight into the inner workings of the institution with a more in-depth understanding of the JCC’s financials, an exclusive tour, intimate opportunities with JCC leadership, and social gatherings. 

Women of the J

Women of the J is an intimate conversation and breakfast series that features female leaders from our community, in conversation with JCC Executive Director Rabbi Joy Levitt, speaking about their careers, parenting, religion, women’s empowerment, and relationships. Previous guests have included Roberta Kaplan, lead counsel in the Edie Windsor case; Michelle Ganeless, president of Comedy Central; Ophira Eisenberg, host of Ask Me Another; and more.
