Sundays in the Lot

We're holding on to every last moment of this fall weather, and inviting you to join us for four Sunday Fun Days in the JCC Harlem Lot! Through Sunday, Nov 22, weather permitting, we'll be offering FREE programs and opportunities for the whole family to enjoy. To ensure everyone's safety, please review our new outdoor programming safety protocols:

  • Everyone aged 2 years and older must be wearing a mask at all times

  • We will not be providing food or drink of any kind

  • Pre-registration for each program is required

  • Recommendations state that distanced events, including those outdoors, greatly reduce exposure.

  • We will designate large chalked "circle pods" within which you and your party can move around (dance, wiggle, stretch—whatever floats your boat), and kindly ask that you and your party keep to them

  • No one will be allowed inside JCC Harlem, including to use the restroom

  • In the event of inclement weather, we will notify registrants by email of program cancellation

We are so excited to welcome you back home. The Lot at 318 W 118th awaits!
