Our favorite thing about the JCC is: Our favorite thing about the JCC is the supportive and friendly staff.
From the fitness center staff, to the class instructors and office personnel, we have been amazed at the level of
professionalism and positive energy we find at the JCC.
Our children’s favorite thing to do at the JCC: Get chocolate kisses from Membership Director Barbara Conklin’s
office (of course, after swimming or going to the PlayGym).
Every year, we look forward to: Our kids love the swim lessons in the spring!
Without the JCC, we wouldn’t be able to: Work out. It’s not easy to find a gym where there are age-appropriate
activities for all of our children going on at the same time. The activities are flexible enough to work around all six of our

 Members since: 2001
 We joined the JCC: We moved to Rochester and didn’t know
 anyone.We immediatelyjoined the JCCandittruly changedour lives.
 We feel we belong to more than just a community—a world of just
 all around healthy energy.
 Our membership has value to us because: It enhances
 our connection to this community and there is something for all 7
 members of our family. As our children grow, there are always new
 things happening for each of them to enjoy. We have also made
 so many wonderful friends. Sitter Service is fabulous – we use it
 everyday.
 Our favorite thing about the JCC is: There’s a ton,
 but we love Geulah’s, the JCC Coffee Shop and the many people
 that are always so helpful and friendly. That’s what really makes
 it so special.
 Our children’s favorite thing to do at the JCC:
 Early Childhood, swimming lessons, PlayGym, and the many
 programs and events that are constantly happening around
 the year. These are just a few examples of how the JCC fulfills
 their lives.
 Every year, we look forward to: We love Purim
 Palooza! We also enjoy the Jewish Film Festival (our family
