Celebrate Jewish Life at the JCC. Connect as a community, make memories, and establish traditions through our Jewish life classes, holiday celebrations, and Shabbat dinners.

Shabbat Programs

Spend your Shabbat at the JCC. Whether you’re looking for a Friday morning Shabbat sing-along, a family Friday night dinner, or free Saturday afternoon programming, we offer many different ways to observe Shabbat and come together as a community. Saturday afternoon programs are currently on pause.

Shabbat Together

Fridays are special for toddlers as we celebrate Shabbat in our classroom community! Through exploration, play, music, movement, stories, and art, children will experience Jewish values and holidays with friends and teachers. 2–3 years, drop-off.

Free Holiday Programs

Come celebrate holidays as a community with sensory explorations, stories, art, and songs. We celebrate Jewish holidays year-round, including Tu B’Shevat, Purim, Passover, Chanukah, Sukkot, and more.


Get ready, get set...Shabbat! Start your Fridays off right as we sing and dance with friends in a Jewish music class like no other. ShaJam! is led by an instructor from of Tkiya: The Jewish Community Music Initiative. Appropriate for children ages 6 months-3 years and under.

Help us continue to ensure accessible programming for everyone. Please support Jewish Life programming at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan.
