Your J is Currently Virtual... Come and See...
Dear Springfield JCC Families,

As we close one door, we open another. We look forward to engaging with you in ways we could not have imagined a couple of weeks ago and continue to deliver value for your membership in our community. In this second edition of J.Connection please find activities and a schedule of live exchanges to keep us all occupied and engaged during these days of sheltering in place.  
In the days ahead, the J staff will continue to explore how we can fill new spaces, online and beyond, to continue to bring our community together in new, healthy, and meaningful ways . If you have an idea, want to connect with community members, or otherwise want to explore ways to demonstrate our values and celebrate our community (while ensuring strict adherence to the physical distancing and quarantine protocols of the CDC), please reach out to us .

We want to take this opportunity to express our appreciation to our staff who continue to work daily to produce, compile, edit and communicate the availability of these resources. We also want to thank so many of you who have decided to contribute your tuition and membership payments to our staff sustainability efforts.  

Looking forward to the other side and the opportunity to celebrate that together.

Jonathan Goldsmith Michael Paysnick
President Executive Director
