JCC Community Day

Lend a hand...or two

Leventhal-Sidman JCC, Thursday, December 25, 2014 10am-1pm

Everyone welcome
December 25 will be a day to lend a hand to the community at the JCC. The JCC will be open to the public from 10am-1pm. Participate in family-friendly community service-themed activities that spread joy to those in need. Activities include making blankets for pets at the MSPCA, making tissue paper flower centerpieces to brighten up senior winter lunch programs, sorting donations collected by the JCC Early Learning Centers for Cradles to Crayons, and decorating birthday bags and warm wish notes for the recipients of the Cradles to Crayons donations. You'll also have the opportunity to play chess for charity - beat the JCC's chess king and we'll make a donation to the charity of your choice. The JCC facilities including the gym, indoor pool and children's gym will also be open. Please feel free to bring donations for Cradles to Crayons. Can't attend the JCC on December 25, but still want to lend a hand, here are some other volunteer opportunities. For more information, contact bostonjcc.org/communityday or 617-558-6529.

Israeli Stage presents Never Ever Ever

Written by Sivan Ben Yishai, Starring Jordan Ahnquist

Leventhal-Sidman JCC, Monday, February 9 (7:30pm)

This touching portrayal of a teenage boy dealing with dyslexia was the winner of four Israeli Assitej Awards in 2013. Yoni runs away from school, from home, from himself. He runs away the moment he’s confronted with the words disabled or dyslexic. In this moving, one-man play, Ben Yishai provides the audience an experience of what it’s like to feel like an outsider, feeling different, being differently-abled, yet, at the same time whole.  Show is performed as a staged reading.
 
Israeli Stage is dedicated to exposing audiences to the works of Israeli playwrights, offering high-quality artistic, apolitical programming to help promote Israeli culture in a meaningful way.

All JCC arts and humanities offerings are programs of the Ryna Greenbaum JCC Center for the Arts. 
 
Co-sponsored by Gateways, Jewish Big Brother Big Sister, JCC Inclusion and Support Services, Jewish Vocational Service, and Yachad.
