A Message from Lynne Preston Executive Director

W

e have a number of exciting new programs to introduce to you this fall! For the younger kids, there is Pre-School Dance and Pre-Primary and Modern Dance (page 15), as well as an Israeli Folk Dancing (page 15) class for the entire family. For the 9-12 age group, we are introducing a new, hands-on class called: Kids Drone Zone (page 21), that introduces the physics of flight, electronics, photography, mapping, racing, and much more – watch your child’s imagination take flight! Another new class for your teen to try is TET: Team Environment Training (page 21), a specialized training program that enhances individual skill sets to achieve stronger physical performances while building both strong foundations and teamwork. Swimland (page 31) will be launching at the JCC in the fall; they will be running all our learnto-swim group classes. For more details, go to their website: Swimland.ca. There will be priority registration for JCC members, and all registrations will be taken directly by Swimland. The JCC will continue to run private swim lessons, as well as certifications courses including Bronze Star, Bronze Cross, Bronze Medallion, and the National Lifeguard (pages 33-35). We are proud to introduce Corinna AnnePoss, a Redcord Intuitive Rehabilitationist, RMT, and Pilates Specialist. Using Pilates (page 39) techniques alongside massage therapy techniques, a personalized program is available for you. Our new RowHouse (page 42) class will challenges you to a whole new level of fitness using rowing machines for cardio, along with mat work, and strength exercises. The AquaBox (page 42) introduces the “new school” philosophy of boxing, while FitFlow (page 42) provides

the perfect balance of strength building, coordination, and balance exercises to both challenge you and increase mobility. Find out more about our PWR! Moves (page 45) program designed for people with Parkinson’s. We are extremely excited to announce that CrossFit (page 41) is coming to the JCC! CrossFit is designed for all fitness levels and experience, so no need to be intimidated. Our new on-site specialist, Austin Boje, is looking forward to sharing his love for CrossFit with the community! Watch our website for class schedules and registration options. The fall session promises to be a busy one for our Golden Age group, with a High Tea on Sunday, October 27 (page 52), our first ever Community Challah Bake on Thursday, November 14 (page 53), and annual Chanukah Lunch on Tuesday, December 10 (page 51). There truly is something for everyone at the JCC!

Teen Connect is the BBYO type experience made just for grade 7 and 8 students offering social and meaningful experiences that will serve as a gateway to continued involvement in Jewish life. Teen Connect offers teens a variety of experiences to help bridge the gap between middle school and high school. The purpose is to provide middle school students with a positive experience in which they can get together with camp, school, and synagogue friends, as well as meet new friends. Teen Connect allows middle school students to begin experiencing the privileges and obligations of being a member of the Jewish and general communities. A heavy focus is on the social aspect of programing, allowing for connections to be made which in turn will foster a stronger Jewish future. Teen Connect is a pipeline program that leads directly into BBYO.

Jewish Calendar 101 August - December 2019 | Av - Tevet 5779-5780*

* Holidays begin at sundown on the evening before and conclude at sundown on the noted day.

Fast of 9 of Av

Sukkot

The saddest day in the Jewish calendar. The focus of the mourning is on the destruction on this date of both the First Temple (422 BCE) and the Second Temple (68 CE). It is observed as a fast day and mourning laws apply. On the eve of the fast, the scroll of Eichah (Lamentations) is read in the synagogue.

Named after the booths or huts (sukkot in Hebrew) where Jews are supposed to dwell during this week-long celebration. According to rabbinic tradition, these flimsy sukkot represent the huts in which the Israelites dwelt during their 40 years of wandering in the desert after escaping from slavery in Egypt. The festival of Sukkot is one of the three great pilgrimage festivals of the Jewish year.

August 11 | 10 Av

Tu B'Av

August 16 | 15 Av

This date celebrates the ending of the Jewish people wandering for 40 years in the desert after leaving Egypt. It is also the holiday of love in modern Israel.

High Holidays

September 30-October 9 | 1-10 Tishrei

This holiday is also known as the Ten Days of Awe, where first we celebrate Rosh HaShanah (September 30-October 1 | 1-2 Tishrei) – the head of the new year – and greet each other: Shana Tova Umetuka (Have a good and sweet year). It is customary to bake round challah, as a metaphor of the cycle of life, and dip pieces in honey. Ten days later, we observe Yom Kippur (October 9 | 10 Tishrei) – the Day of Atonement – a day of spiritual cleansing where we fast and attend synagogue for an entire day of solemn prayer. Between these two dates, there are 10 days where Jews are called to reflect on their shortcomings and transgressions; a period of introspection. During these days it is customary to go to a body of water (preferably with fish), symbolically cast our sins into the water, and leave our past shortcomings behind us, thereby starting the new year with a clean slate. This ritual is called Tashlich. Sources: myjewishlearning.org and chabad.org.

October 14-20 | 15-21 Tishrei

Shmini Atzeret / Simchat Torah October 21-22 | 22-23 Tishrei

Shmini Atzeret celebrates the last day of Sukkot, while Simchat Torah observes the finishing of the reading of the Torah – the Five Books of Moses – and the immediate beginning of the reading from the first book called Bereshit (Genesis). In this manner, the annual cycle of Torah readings and studying remains unbroken. During this holiday, we dance and joyfully parade with the Torah scrolls in the synagogue.

Chanukah

December 23-30 | 25 Kislev-2 Tevet

During Chanukah, we celebrate Juddah and the Maccabees defeating the Greco-Syrian army in 165 BCE. When the Maccabees regained control of the Temple they only found enough oil to light the menorah for one day, yet it miraculously lasted for eight days. This is why we now light a Chanukiyah (a candelabra with nine branches instead of seven) for eight days. Customs include exchanging gifts, playing dreidel (spin tops), winning or giving gelt (chocolate coins), and eating fried foods such as latkes (potato pancakes), sufganiyot (donuts), and any other fried foods. It is also referred to as the festival of light during the shortest days of the year and the winter solstice.

Aquafitness Class Descriptions As You Choose Participants are free to choose to work out in the deep water wearing a flotation belt or in the shallow water with their feet on the floor. With careful attention and preparation, the instructor is able to teach to all participants.

Aqua Variety A challenging class offering a variety of formats and styles. May include deep water workout, Tabata, tether, interval, boot camp, circuit, shallow or Aqua Zen.

Deep Water Workout Wearing a floatation belt, you submerge yourself in the deep end of a pool for a deep water workout! While your deep water aerobics class has a low impact on your joints, it has an enormous impact on your cardiovascular system with the help of the resistance in the water. Class formats may vary between Tabata, circuit, boot camp or interval.

Aqua Zen A shallow water aquafitness experience that encourages peace and vitality through a variety of movements that inspires harmony within the mind, body and spirit. This holistic, wellness-based class focuses on mindfulness and range of motion while improving balance and body awareness. Find your zen while receiving all of the tranquility that the water has to offer.

Shallow Water Workout Activate your aqua urge for exercise! This class is held in the pool’s shallow end in chest-deep water so your feet are always touching the floor. Shallow water workouts improve agility, coordination, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance. Equipment may be used to develop strength and balance. Tether Deep Water Workout Aquafit enthusiasts will benefit from this fun cardiovascular workout in the deep water! There is a strong focus on core stability while performing deep water moves which will result in increased intensity. Participants will find themselves tethered to a lane rope with a bungee cord attached to a belt. Great for beginner to advanced!

For over a decade, Corrina has been teaching, practicing, and guiding those who have made the decision to get out of pain, stay out of pain, and have a better sense of balance. After studying massage therapy, trigger point and active release therapy, she wanted to learn more; not only how to manually help the body, but also how to empower her clients to maintain their bodies through movement. This led to certification in Iyengar Yoga Levels 1 and 2, Stott Pilates (ISP), Neuromuscular Redcord Active training, and Anatomy Trains manual and movement certifications. She also became a Fletcher Matwork Licensed Provider. Corrina also ventured into OsteoPilates and body rolling techniques and obtained certifications in both. She also studied – and continues to study – energy rebalancing, qigong, and shamanism. All of the above happened after Corrina was hit by a truck and a light bulb went off that said… LIFE IS TOO SHORT.

Classes have no ability criteria, however they are designed to prepare you to progress toward a goal or event. It doesn’t matter if you are preparing for a cycling vacation, a Gran Fondo, riding off the front in a cycling event, striving for a personal best time, or simply wanting to commute more safely and competently – we want you to have goals and be motivated to achieve them. We progress through the winter season with structured progressive classes. We don’t make pretty sets simply to pass the time. We spend our precious time in the saddle getting more competent on the bike. We get pumped about training hard, riding outside, and maybe participating in an event. There are no egos – everyone is the same speed on a trainer. The bottom line: good company, great music, and smart sessions.

Because weight baring exercise is so important, walking, posture (against a wall) and balance (holding on to a dance bar) will be done standing.
