Dear Community,


It's truly hard to believe, but Passover 2021/5781 is upon us. We've assembled some amazing programs and resources to help you celebrate—and can't wait for the day we're all together in person again.

In liberation,

Meg + the JCC Harlem Team

We are so pleased to share with you the Harlem Holiday Companion Project. This collection of Torah thoughts and reflections from a diverse set of voices in our Harlem community is paired with illustrative imagery, which centers holidays in the Jewish calendar. We acknowledge with deep gratitude the efforts of two community members, Kyle Savitch and Ally Pockrass, who have created and spearheaded this beautiful initiative.
