Dear MNjcc Community,
I know that physical distancing poses a challenge to everyone who uses our J to learn, stay healthy and stay connected. Even though our building has had to temporarily close during the COVID-19 outbreak, our team of dedicated staff is working hard behind the scenes to keep you and your family active and socially connected.  

This week, we developed a host of online and virtual programs to help you get through this unprecedented time, including live fitness classes every day, wellness and mindfulness sessions, programs and resources for children and families, social check-ins for EveryDay Friends, Shabbat Song Circle, book club and more! 

Links and listings may be found on our website. Most of these programs will be available through Zoom, as well as through our  Facebook and two Instagram pages (milesnadaljcc and mnjccfitness). 

Here is what some members are saying about these programs:  

"This morning was a lifesaver.  We are having such a tough time. This is a bright spot in our day." 
"Thank you for keeping everyone connected. You and your team are truly remarkable."  

"Core Class was amazing.  I'm a frontline healthcare worker and I did it on my lunch. I was so stressed and feel way better.  Thank you thank you thank you for this! 

I want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to answer your questions about how our closing affects program-related fees, enrollment expenses and membership dues. I promise to have those answers in the very near future.  In the meantime, I look forward to enjoying our upcoming online programs with you. 

Please make sure to stay safe, stay inside, and stay virtually connected with your friends, loved ones and your MNjcc.
If you wish, please join me to light the Shabbat candles, live tonight (Friday March 20) at sunset, 7:31 pm our Facebook page

Warm Regards
Harriet Wichin
Executive Director
