Tour the Site (Desktop)
Home Page: Main Navigation
This site is organized a little differently from our last one. The section on our former site known as COMMUNITIES is now called ADULTS as it reflects only programs for grownups (obviously). The area once known as FAMILY LIFE is now CHILDREN + FAMILIES, and the area known as HEALTH + WELLNESS is now FITNESS + WELLNESS. FILM and ARTS are now combined into one menu. ISRAEL programs may now be found under JEWISH LIFE. See below for information on special needs programming.
Home Page: Three ways to search
(1) In the upper right hand corner, you'll see a magnifying glass icon. Click it, and a SEARCH BAR comes up.
This SEARCH BAR gives you opportunities to search the Entire Website (basically, everything: pages, programs, and classes),,,.
...and Programs + Classes, which ONLY searches for programs + classes, and gives you several ways to filter, including by keyword, by category (program area), age, and day of week. Don't feel like filtering? Just click SEARCH without selecting any search criteria and you'll be taken to the Programs + Classes page (see below).
(2) On the home page carousel, on the right side, you'll see a large box which enables you to do a "quick search" by program category and age. Or just click SEARCH -- you'll be taken to the Programs + Classes page (see below) where you can filter in many different ways.
(3) Or, finally, from the top navigation bar, just click PROGRAMS + CLASSES. You won't be able to filter anything until you get to the page with the programs and classes on it, but it is the most "direct route" to that page.
Home Page: Login Icon
To log in to your account, click the little "person" icon to the left of the magnifying glass.
Home Page: Hours + Schedules
You can find the link to Hours + Schedules in the navigation bar on the top left. A pulldown menu will indicate gym, pool, group exercise, and building hours, including special holiday hours.
Home Page: Where's the Calendar?
Scroll a bit further down the home page to find the WHAT'S HAPPENING AT THE J section, which tells you what the next ten programs happening at the JCC are, depending on what time you check it. If you're looking for a calendar and wish to see what's happening on a particular day, click on PROGRAMS + CLASSES link and you'll be brought to a calendar.
Home Page: Accessibility Icon
The little round icon on the right side of the home page allows you to change the look of the website in a variety of ways to make it easier for you to read.
Programs + Classes Page
On the programs and classes page, you'll find a series of blocks/images representing the five main navigation areas plus JCC Harlem. Click on any one of these to be taken the classes/programs in those areas.
On the left side, you'll find a search bar and a calendar. Use the search bar to look for a class or program by term, like "reiki," "adaptations," or "tumbling." Use the calendar to search or programs and classes by date.
A cool thing you can do with the calendar is select a single date or a range of dates, so you can see what's happening during one day or a period of time. Click on the first date, then move ahead to the last date in your range and click it. It will bring up your date range and then display the programs and classes on the right in that range.
Below the calendar are the Filters, which allow you to sort programs and classes via several means, including program category (the five main navigation areas + JCC Harlem), age (Childrens ages 0-18, Adults), day of week (M-F), time of day, and season (Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter).
