Open house this Sunday at Kaplen JCC

In celebration of the start of a new membership season, the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly will hold a community open house on Sunday, September 11, from 1-4 p.m. JCC staff will provide guided facility tours, and members and guests can enjoy JCC gyms, sample chair massages, try the outdoor pools and water park, visit classes, and use the adult and youth fitness centers. There also will be special activities for children, including a moon bounce, a petting zoo, a bounce house, face painting, glitter tattoos, a balloonologist, access to the nursery school’s playgrounds and tumble room, and an open house at the Thurnauer School of Music. In memory of the victims and first responders who lost their lives on 9/11, the JCC also will offer Kids for Kindness, a community mitzvah project. Children will be able to create banners showing hope, gratitude, and togetherness. The banners will be displayed in the JCC’s youth wing to spread patriotic awareness and optimism.

In addition to sample classes and demonstrations for children and adults, there will be music, giveaways, and more. JCC representatives will be on hand to talk about programs and membership and help register for classes. The JCC also is offering a special promotion in connection with the open house; if you join by October 31 you will get $150 off membership. If you join at the open house, you will receive an extra $50 in JCC cash.
