Of course, there are the Purim events but I also want to share info about the gorgeous Shabbat Shop that is set up in the lobby of the JCC each Thursday and Friday through the year. I have bought a Challah cover, flowers, Challah, hostess gifts – you name it!
For Purim, I encourage you to stop by there to see all the gorgeous gifts they have to make Purim special for your family. If you are missing the Judaica shops that used to be in our neighborhood, this is a wonderful way to have access to many of those holiday items. Of course, you can go to West Side Judaica on Broadway between 88th/89th (which I love to support so we can keep it!)
The JCC lobby is a special place as we prepare for Purim and Shabbat. The shop, I feel compelled to tell you, is run by a group of the JCC’s Adaptations program which supports the adult special needs community.
