Planning for another safe and successful summer camp

The past year has been the most trying and

difficult year for most of the young school age

children. They have had to adapt and learn

how to attend school virtually, how to stay

connected with peers and how to wear masks. The

children have had to learn new vocabulary like

“quarantine,” “isolation” and “social distancing.”

Things that shouldn’t even come across children’s

minds at that age.

During all of this, the Sam Pomeranz Jewish

Community Center has tried to remain a needed

constant in the children’s lives. We know the

importance of recreational programming for

school age children. The children need it not only

so parents can attend work but for their social and

emotional wellbeing. Children need to be

able to interact, play and engage with others

their own age. It is not only needed to help

foster and develop social emotional skills

but to help with regulating their feelings.

Last year, the JCC’s Camp Joe & Lynne

Romano was open for seven wonderful

weeks. We worked diligently with the

Onondaga Department of Health, the CDC

and state licensors to come up with not only

a required plan and protocol but what could

be the best practice in keeping everyone safe

and healthy.

and training to be able to implement a program

Our Jewish Community Center—Strength & Resilience

May 2021

Dear Friends,

In this second year of COVID the Sam Pomeranz Jewish

Community Center has made the difficult decision not to hold

our in-person Gala/Annual Meeting.

Our annual business meeting is not only historical in

nature—this is our 159th year—but also poignant as we honor

community leaders who have dedicated themselves to service

to their Jewish community. The hard reality is that this event

is the largest fundraiser for the Jewish Community Center. The

proceeds from this event support the many scholarships that

we give to children and their families for early childhood care,

school-age programming, summer camps and senior adults. To

do without the dollars generated by this event is difficult and may

have serious consequences. We have reached this decision based

on our obligation and commitment to keep our community safe.

We miss the camaraderie and support these events provide. We

have vigorously debated the pros and cons of holding some type

of event: virtual meeting or a non-event-event, ad book or just a

much smaller event?

Our Community has been very generous to us this past year

whether continuing to pay tuition while we were closed, buying

Super Bowl squares, or contributing to our end-of-year campaign.

How do we come to you and ask you for still more? We know

you are supporting us because of the excellence of our programs

and how desperately they were missed for the two months

that we were closed. We know that this support came from an

understanding of our importance to your community! We are the

central address, the town square so to speak.

So, there you have it, our final ask for this fiscal year. If

you have given to us for our Annual Meeting/Gala in previous

years, whether as a sponsor, table host or by taking an ad in

our ad book, we ask for your support again. We will of course

acknowledge your support publicly in our community and on our

website.

This past year has been a lesson about strength and resilience

of community. The lesson learned this year was the lesson of

strength we gather when we stand together shoulder to shoulder

and support each other. We must never forget that we are the

beneficiaries of those leaders who came before us and that it is

our responsibility to be the trustees for those who will stand in

our place.

Sincerely,

Marci Erlebacher

Executive Director

Steven Sisskind

Board President

ATTENTION JCC OF SYRACUSE MEMBERS:

Please remember to use your membership card to enter the building on Saturdays and access the pools. Don’t have

a membership card? Stop by the Main Entrance reception desk, call 315-445-2360 or email info@jccsyr.org.

Welcome JCC Members

The 2021 outdoor

swimming season

is finally here! Our

outdoor heated

pools are a great

gathering place

for members to

cool off, relax and exercise—even during

the pandemic! Like last summer, we’ll

have various changes and protocols in

place to help ensure your health and

safety. Although things may not be fully

back to “normal” this summer, we are

confident that you will still have plenty of

opportunities to enjoy the water and sun.

Once again this year our top priority is

to run the pool in the safest way possible.

Pool capacity and hours will again be

adjusted to accommodate current health

regulations. As of right now the following

health and safety protocols will be in place.

• Please make your pool reservations in

advance. Visit www.bit.ly/resjccsyr to

make a reservation.

• When you come to the pool we will

ask you some basic health screening

questions. If you are sick, feel ill or

have symptoms of COVID-19, please

do not come to the JCC.

• Social distancing with lounge chairs/

tables to keep families separate.

• Cleaning of chairs/equipment in

between reservations.

• Specific times for semi-private and

private swim lessons so there will

be no mixing with recreational

swimming.

• Group swimming lessons will not be

offered again this year.

Should health regulations be relaxed

this summer we will re-evaluate our

health/safety protocols and make

adjustments accordingly.

Make the most of your membership by

using the pool to its fullest this summer.

Come swim after work, on weekends

with family and friends or after morning

workouts. Incorporating the pool into your

personal fitness training will add a new

dimension to your exercise routine.

Because the JCC pool is a membersonly

benefit, please remember to bring

your membership card to the pool and

check-in at the lifeguard desk upon

entering the pool area. If you have any

questions regarding the pool, please

contact us at 315-445-2360. Thank you for

being a JCC of Syracuse member. We hope

to see you pool side!

Summer Camp

• Continued from page 1

the hard work so worthwhile,” said Amy

Bisnett, associate director of children’s

programming. “We had a successful

summer camp and pool season, maybe not

for the bottom line of our agency but for

the wellbeing of children and staff.”

Planning for 2021 Camp Romano

began almost immediately after the camp

season ended last year. There were plans in

place to bring even more of our specialty

camps and activities back. Again, our

goal is to remain as safe as possible while

offering a top-of-the-line camp experience.

This past year we have learned a lot and

are excited for summer to begin. Word

must have gotten out on how successful

Camp Romano was last year as enrollment

for this summer is breaking records. We

have more specialty camps full or close to

filling up with waitlists. Some of this is

due to more campers registering and some

is due to the limit on group size that the

Onondaga County of Health still has in

place due to COVID.

Another positive for the JCC is that

staff will be required to get vaccinated.

“The JCC knows how important it is

for our staff to be fully immunized to

help protect themselves and the children

and members of

our facility. We

are excited and

encouraged as all JCC

staff are or will be

fully vaccinated,” says

Marci Erlebacher,

JCC executive

director.

The pandemic

might have disrupted

many plans but the

JCC has adapted and

enhanced what they

can offer. It is now

more important than

ever that we come

together and keep the wellbeing of all at

the forefront of the JCC.

Registration for the JCC of Syracuse’s

2021 Camp Romano is happening now.

The JCC’s summer day camp

will run weekdays for eight

weeks from June 28 through

August 20. Like last year, this

year’s summer camp will serve

both preschool and schoolage

children only. The JCC’s

SyraCruisin’ teen travel camp

and other teen programs are

currently not scheduled to

run this summer because of

continued coronavirus health

and safety guidelines.

Like last year, the JCC’s Camp Romano

will feature curbside drop-off and pickup

of campers, small group sizes and no

commingling of camp groups. Campers

age two and older must wear a mask or

cloth face covering while indoors, although

accommodations will be made based on

each child’s abilities. Easily accessible

outdoor and indoor handwashing stations

will again be available this summer.

Campers will also be provided individual

baskets to use onsite to keep their

belongings together yet separate from

others.

Current JCC membership or program

enrollment is not necessary for a child

to attend Camp Romano. Registration

this year is filling up quickly and many

school-age specialty camps are already

full. However, should health regulations be

relaxed this summer we will look to make

adjustments accordingly.

Camp Romano summer day camp, and to

automatically charge my credit card account for each

consecutive month of the plan.

I understand that membership dues are automatically

renewed each year unless I give notice in writing.
