Dear JCC Members, 
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time. 
The Katz JCC campus at 1301 Springdale Road was temporarily closed today, March 9, due to a security threat. The situation has been resolved and there are no safety concerns at this time. 

We will reopen the building at 1pm today, including Just4Kids, JSplash, and Fitness & Wellness. 
The Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey and our family of agencies, including the Katz JCC, are committed to ensuring the safety and security of our staff and members. In addition to our standard security protocols, we are operating under enhanced security measures and in cooperation with local, state, and federal law enforcement. 
As you may be aware, there were two other reported incidents: one in Philadelphia and one in New York. These threats are no longer isolated to our local community. 
Through preparedness, partnerships, and training, we will continue to work together to ensure the safety and security of our beloved community. 
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me directly at
Oded Kraus
Katz JCC Executive Director
