Dear Patron: When you step into the JCC of Mid-Westchester, you'll find a Center filled with your neighbors, dedicated staff and a wide array of year-round programs, activities and special events. Our JCC is a place where families and individuals come together for education, fun, fitness and socialization in a safe and welcoming environment. As many of you know, thanks to a fundraising initiative by one of our loyal patrons, we have a new additional dance studio that will house more dance programs and movement and fitness classes. We are also proud of the improvements that we have made in the facility itself: new benches outside, better lighting, improved showers and locker rooms, web-based communications for all our patrons on large display screens throughout the building, and an extensive upgrade to our website so that everyone has easier access to our scheduled events, classes, and news. Our stellar programs in Early Childhood, Dance, Camps, and the arts are growing. And we continue to offer

outstanding resources for those with special needs, with extensive therapy programs and innovative enrichment opportunities. As a community center, we take pride in the breadth and depth of our services for everyone in the community. This year brings new programming in collaboration with UJA’s Engage Jewish Service Corp and the Israeli community in Westchester, as well as multiple events with other JCCs, UJA affiliates, local hospitals, regional organizations and local private and public schools to benefit all family members. Come to the JCC or visit us online at jccmw.org and see what we can offer you. Better still, drop by the offices and let us know how we can include you in the conversation that brings our community together.
