R&R Shabbat at the JCC

Children laying with blocks

The 2024 R&R season is over. We can't wait to see you again in 2025!

Looking for something new and interesting to do as a family or with friends? R&R is an antidote to our 24/7 lifestyle. R&R is an amazing weekly, free opportunity to be together as a family and as a community: an incredible, inclusive alternative to the typical New York Saturday.

Make your Shabbat afternoon special and experience our community with workshops in art, yoga, meditation, food, music, lectures, film, creative art projects, spa experiences, and indoor and outdoor play. Join us for programs for children and adults that respect all levels of observance. Come in from the ordinary and experience Shabbat. It's an ancient solution to a modern dilemma, so priceless we've made it free. No registration required.
