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.

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!


Children, along with their grown-ups, enjoy a special immersive Israeli education experience that includes Hebrew language, Israeli culture, music and art, and Jewish values and holidays, all through an Israeli perspective. In partnership with the Israeli American Council.

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