Moving to a new city can bring a lot of stress with it. Between packing up all our possessions and then unpacking all our possessions, to becoming acclimated to our new environment, to meeting new people – it can be daunting.
Jewish Daytonians have a long and storied tradition of giving.
Every day in the JCC Preschool, Jewish traditions come to life. It might look like magic, but it’s absolutely due to our amazing staff of teachers and assistants.
This past weekend, I received a statement from the Youngstown Area Jewish Federation. A 20-year-old man posted a video on Instagram on July 11th which showed someone shooting a semi-automatic rifle with the caption, “Police identified the Youngstown Jewish Family Community shooter as local white nationalist Seamus O’Rearedon.”
PJ Library loves celebrating holidays! More specifically, PJ Library loves helping families celebrate Jewish holidays through books, programs, and music.
What is your favorite Jewish holiday? What is your favorite memory? Is it hearing the blast of the shofar on Rosh Hashanah? Is it feeling the warmth of the lit candles of the menorah and the smell of latkes frying during Chanukah?
Our city of Dayton has been inundated with an unprecedented amount of challenges in the past months. This weekend, the pain that has recently been felt in Pittsburgh, in Gilroy, and in El Paso, came to Dayton and it has impacted us all.
The cliché is true: there’s no Jewish holiday celebration that doesn’t involve food! At the JCC, it’s also true that a holiday celebration isn’t complete without the opportunity for our community to partake in tikkun olam, the Jewish value of repairing the world.
Everyone has imagined a better world. A world full of connections, acceptance, and caring. As Jews, we are natural dreamers.
There is an abundance of activities in Jewish Dayton, including cultural, social, educational, and religious events for people of all ages.
