Dear JCC Community,
The JCC East Bay, including all programs in Berkeley and Oakland, will be closed this week, November 19 - November 23. The air quality in our area is predicted to be unhealthy in the next several days.
As you may know, the JCC was already scheduled to be closed on Thursday and Friday due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
For the coming days, it was not an easy decision to cancel programs. We know how important the JCC is to those who rely on us, and do not make this decision lightly. The JCC will be reviewing its facility and guidelines around operations during times like these. Our historic building in Berkeley and outdoor passageways are important considerations, as are our staff who worked tirelessly last week - both inside and out - to create fun indoor experiences.
We appreciate your understanding and recognize the impact this closure may have. The JCC will return to regular operations on Monday, November 26. We look forward to seeing you then.
Amy Tobin, CEO
