Hanukkah 2020 with JCC of Northern NJ


November, 2020 — Hanukkah is coming and here at JCC of Northern NJ, we’re well on our way to celebrate in new and innovative ways for this special year.

Hanukkah Card Making for Seniors

Over the past two weeks, young families have been gathering at local parks in Glen Rock & Hillsdale to make Hanukkah cards for isolated seniors, spreading a little cheer and youthful energy during a time of isolation and loneliness.



Nightly Community Candle Lighting

Coming up, the community at large is invited to attend a nightly candle lighting Zoom. Partnering with the JCC of Central Jersey, Jewish Federation of the Heart of NJ and All Ages Fair Lawn allows us to light our candles together, creating a moment of connection within our community.
