We’re all superheroes

fighting this pandemic together

Yes, we’ve all been superheroes navigating

our way through the uncharted waters

of this pandemic for the past 18 months.

By wearing a mask where warranted,

maintaining social distancing and

following critical health and safety

guidelines, you’ve worked hard to keep

your friends and family safe. Just like the

JCC has worked tirelessly to keep our

members, visitors, staff and community

safe by implementing appropriate

protocols. It’s been a very draining and

wild ride, and we’re not out of the woods

yet, but we’re getting there and we’ll

continue to do so by working together.

Thank you for your commitment to

the JCC and working with us to keep our

campus community and the community

at large safe. Your support during

these trying times—whether through

membership, registering your children in

our programs or making a tax-deductible

donation—has been tremendous and much

appreciated. Working together has brought

out the best superhero qualities in all of us.

For the latest information on current

COVID-19 protocols at the JCC, visit our

website www.jccsyr.org. If you have any

questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate

to contact us at 315-445-2360 or

info@jccsyr.org.

A note about our photos...

Some people pictured in this issue are not wearing masks because of different

COVID-19 protocols at the time or the photos were taken pre-pandemic.

2021 KlezFest CNY postponed until next year

The organizers of KlezFest

CNY, sponsored by the

Jewish Federation of Central

New York, have postponed

this year’s September 19

music festival to Sunday,

September 18, 2022. This

tough decision was made

out of an abundance of

caution to help protect the

health and safety of the community due

to the rapidly spreading COVID-19 Delta

variant. The organizers thank the artists,

sponsors and vendors who recently signed

on and appreciate their understanding

and flexibility as the festival works to

come back bigger and better next year. For

questions about the 2022 KlezFest CNY,

please contact the JCC of Syracuse at

315-445-2360 or pjcny@jccsyr.org.

Supporting Your Center

315-445-2360 | www.jccsyr.org

The JCC of Syracuse is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your continued

financial contributions, gifts, grants and endowments allow us to serve

you, your family and the larger community six days per week, year round.

Funds raised are critical to daily operations, special programming, future

development and improvements, and scholarships and financial aid.

End-of-year donation

Public support is imperative to the JCC of

Syracuse’s survival. The center depends on

these donations for a full 7% of its annual

budget. Information about making a taxdeductible,

end-of-year contribution will

be sent out in late fall.

Matching gifts

Many area companies have matching gift

programs, which encourage charitable

giving by their employees. Under these

programs, companies match gifts—often

dollar for dollar or even two dollars to

one—that individuals make to nonprofit,

tax-exempt organizations. Your gift to

the JCC may qualify. Please check with

your employer to determine eligibility

requirements.

Tribute cards

To commemorate special occasions,

including births, birthdays, graduations,

anniversaries, marriages, Bar or Bat

Mitzvah, or to celebrate and honor

the memory of a loved one, the JCC

welcomes tax-deductible gifts to one of

our many endowment or special funds.

(See the tributes on page 26.) The JCC

will send an acknowledgement card to the

individual (or next of kin) in whose name

the contribution is made. Tribute cards

recognize someone special and help the

JCC. For more information, contact Erin

Hart at 315-445-2040, ext. 112.

Volunteer

An agency such as the JCC is dependent

on the enthusiasm and willingness of

community members who volunteer their

time and talents. Volunteers are invaluable

in bringing vital perspective, experience,

community and manpower to complement

those of our staff members.

Senior Adult Dining Program

Our Bobbi Epstein Lewis Senior Adult

Dining Program (see page 21) offers

seniors a hot, nutritious kosher meal

five days a week at a very affordable

price. It’s our way of “giving back” to

local seniors who form the foundation

of our community. You can help

keep this valuable program going by

making a contribution or becoming a

sponsor of our monthly senior newsletter.

For more information, contact

Erin Hart at 315-445-2040, ext. 112.

Jewish Federation of CNY

The JCC of Syracuse is a beneficiary

agency of the Jewish Federation of

Central New York. The JCC receives

funding from the Federation and

works in close partnership with it to

provide the Jewish community with

essential programs and services.

JCC families and members can help

by giving generously to the Jewish

Federation of CNY campaign.

JCC made virtual learning

The Club J All Day program, which ended in June,

was one of the JCC’s many innovative responses

to helping families during the pandemic.

Starting in March of 2020, when the pandemic first hit,

families were forced to figure out how to work and learn,

all from home. When virtual leaning began, no one could

imagine the toll this would take on the children and their

education and emotional health. Often working parents

struggled to continue their children’s learning while also

working to provide for the family.

The Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center saw

how difficult this was for working families and knew

it needed to provide some type of programming. We

were one of the only

local summer camps

to operate with all the

COVID restrictions

during the summer of

2020. The new safety

measures and protocols were intense, but with dedicated

staff we were successfully able to operate a seven-week

camp program for children. Both the children and the

parents needed this program, not only for the children’s

wellbeing and mental health, but so the parents could

continue to work.

By August of 2020 New York State announced the new

mandates for schools and the dreaded hybrid learning

idea came to fruition. Parents were at a loss of what to do.

Both their child’s education and the ability to continue

to work and provide for their families was at stake. Many

jobs require

parents to leave

the house or,

if working

remotely, do

not allow

time for much

assistance with

the demands of

virtual leaning.

The JCC’s

mission is to

provide quality

programs to fit the needs of its families and we soon

realized those needs were dramatically changing. The

children’s programming team came together last year

and was able to start a new program called Club J All

Day. This program allowed children from the Jamesville-

DeWitt School District to attend virtually on days when

not physically in school. Trained staff were onsite and

worked with the children to adapt to virtual learning

and support them through this new school structure.

It seemed like a win-win for many families. Not only

would their child be supported while virtual learning

they would also get some social interactions with other

children going through the same thing.

To say Club J All Day was difficult was an

understatement. Children are not meant to sit in

front of a screen all day to learn. They crave the faceto-face

engagement and interaction that expands on

their learning. JCC staff were amazed at the children’s

resiliency as they continued to adapt and staff worked to

motivate them.

When the JCC heard the news last spring that the

school district was beginning to bring back its students

in-person full time it was bittersweet. The JCC staff knew

getting back to school was best for the children’s learning,

but they had created their own “school” and worked

together through the hard times. JCC staffers would miss

helping the children each day but were excited to still get

to be a part of their day during the JCC’s After School

Program.

Isabella Balash, 3rd grader at Moses DeWitt

elementary school said it best when on her last Club J

day last spring she stated, “School will be good, but I will

miss coming to Club J.” Children returning to school

in-person full time is a step in the right direction for

hopefully getting back to our new normal soon. In the

meantime, the JCC will continue to change and adapt to

meet the needs of its families and the community at large.

How to Register

Registration for the 2021-2022 school year

has been ongoing, and space is typically

very limited. Each new school year requires

registration. When a class is filled, based on

New York State licensing requirements, a

wait list is developed. Once the school year

begins, children are admitted from the wait

list on a space-available basis.

There is a $36 wait list reservation fee.

This does not guarantee placement in a

classroom. We will notify you if a placement

becomes available, and you will have 48

hours to accept the placement.

Withdrawals, changes

Enrollment in ECDP is a commitment to

our 10-month school year which consists

of three sessions: September–November,

December–February and March–June. Any

withdrawals or enrollment changes must be

made 30 days before the start of a session.

For more information, and to schedule a

tour, please call us at 315-445-2040, ext. 120.

Infant Level

We offer the highest quality of care to our

youngest members in the Syracuse area. To

maintain a developmentally appropriate

environment for our infants, they are

separated by age.

The ECDP provides a responsive

environment that supports and encourages

exploration through a variety of classroom

routines and experiences. Infant caregivers

We are committed to developing the social, emotional, physical

and intellectual well being of each child, allowing them to grow and

flourish as productive members of the community. Our

Hours

Monday–Friday

7 am – 6 pm

focus on daily routines such as hellos and

goodbyes, diapering and toileting, feeding,

dressing and soothing to sleep as part of

the curriculum. These one-on-one routines

help to build positive relationships between

infant and caregiver, promoting trust and

allowing infants to feel secure in their

environment.

Once infants have developed a

trusting relationship with their caregivers

they will start to gain new skills and

participate more actively in daily routines.

The teachers are then able to provide

intentional indoor and outdoor experiences

that allow children to learn while imitating

and pretending, connecting with music

and movement, exploring with sand and

water and creating with art.

emphasis is on helping children become independent,

self-confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic learners.

Toddler Level

• Must be 18-months old by September 9, 2021

Toddler children are at an age when they

establish secure attachments with their

caregivers more quickly and are now eager

to experience their world. They react to

what they experience through their senses

and physical activity. ECDP teachers

provide intentional experiences for

toddlers through a variety of indoor and

outdoor experiences.

Learning materials that match the

children’s growing abilities and interests

are provided and the children start to

explore objects and begin to use them

purposefully. While playing with toys,

imitating and pretending, exploring

sand and water, creating with art and

going outdoors, the toddlers learn to

communicate and socialize with peers and

adults, to think mathematically and to

discover like scientists.

Toddlers start to enjoy special

programming outside of the classroom

setting, such as Toddler Tango and gym

class. Toddlers are placed into classrooms

according to their chronological age.

Children do not need to be toilet trained,

and when appropriate, toilet training will

be incorporated into one of the goals for

your child.

Three-Year Old Level

• Must be age 3 by December 1, 2021

With kindergarten just two years away,

this is an important time for every child

to learn that the world is bigger than

imagined. Children learn new skills

and concepts through our thematic,

hands-on approach to learning. Daily

activities are carefully planned to

promote children’s social, emotional and

cognitive development. Our teachers are

trained to recognize differences in rates

of development within this age group,

and individualize

instruction to

meet every child’s

needs. Materials

and activities are

appropriately tailored

in an effort to

challenge children’s

abilities while

building their selfconfidence.

Throughout the

year, children will

discover the wonder

of the world they live in. All of our threeyear

olds are actively engaged in group

discussions, long-term studies, sensory

play, cooking, process art and more. Our

three-year olds are reading stories, singing

songs and playing their way through the

day. We also tailor gym time with our

specialized gym instructor to the needs of

our three-year olds. We play outside every

day, weather permitting, on our beautiful

fenced-in playgrounds.

With all of these wonderful

activities happening in our three-year

old classrooms, the Early Childhood

Development Program provides a well

rounded and positive learning experience

for your child.

Pre-K Level

• Must be age 4 by December 1, 2021

Our oldest children explore the world

through our hands-on, developmentally

appropriate

approach to

learning. We

include both

child initiated

play and

teacher-directed

academic

experiences on

a daily basis.

Planned lessons

and activities

allow teachers

to informally

and continually assess each child in order

to effectively modify and individualize

instruction.

Academically, we focus on exposing

children to the skills and concepts needed

to succeed in kindergarten. This includes

creative expression, math and reading

readiness, along with fine and gross motor

skill development to help each child learn,

grow and succeed. Each classroom is also

equipped with a SMART board where the

children are engaged in daily interactive

lessons which promote creativity and

critical thinking.

Children at the Pre-K level attend field

trips which coincide with what they are

learning. In the fall our classes will visit

the apple and pumpkin farms. Later in the

school year the teachers will plan specific

trips per their curriculums.

FUNDRAISERS

Square One Art

In October the Early Childhood

Department will be raising money using

your child’s artwork! Parents can purchase

coffee mugs, key chains, T-shirts and

magnets that express their little one’s

creativity. Order forms will be in your

child’s mailbox.

PJ Library

PJ Library in CNY (PJ for pajamas), a JCC

of Syracuse program, holds a monthly

PJ Library day in ECDP. Children are

encouraged to wear their pajamas to school

JCC wraps up another successful summer camp season

315-445-2360 | www.jccsyr.org

With the relaxing of COVID-19

restrictions at the start of this summer,

things finally began to feel more “normal”

again for the Sam Pomeranz Jewish

Community Center’s summer camp.

Hundreds of campers ranging in age from

infants to school-age children—including

many new faces—descended upon the

JCC campus from June 28 – August 20 for

the JCC’s Camp Joe and Lynne Romano.

After last year’s “pandemic summer,” the

children were excited to get back to being

children again. “We were extremely pleased

this summer to offer more offsite specialty

camps for school-age children, schedule

several outdoor field trips to public places

after not offering any last summer, and to

bring back our teen Counselor in Training

(CIT) and Camp Aide programs,” said

Pamela Ranieri, JCC director of children’s

programming. From arts and crafts, games

and swimming to water fun and more,

there were plenty of laughs and excitement

to go around

for all JCC

campers.
