We have been attending the J since 2015. We love the beautiful fitness center as well as the Life Long Learning classes. The J made a tremendous effort during Covid to keep the building open. We so appreciate it! We always feel welcome from the minute we enter the building. Love our JCC!Fran Hoberman-Schenkel & Howard Schenkel
I moved to New Jersey two and a half years ago. Five days after I moved, my son took me to the JCC so I could join. I can’t imagine my life without it now. The pool and all the classes they have to offer have been essential for my health. All the people – that includes staff and members – have been kind, motivating, and inspirational. I missed it so much during COVID. I’m so glad they have opened up again; it may not be the same as it was yet, but I feel safe with the protocols and procedures they have put in place. I am thankful for all the thought, effort, and hard work they have put in to make it possible for us to still enjoy the J we’ve come to love. Thank you all!!JCC Fitness Member
My husband and I have been JCC members for over a year now and have enjoyed swimming at your beautiful indoor pools during the cooler seasons. I recently availed myself of the free orientation at the Fitness Center and worked with one of your personal trainers, Marianna. Tina, at reception, accommodated my appointment request expeditiously. I was so very impressed with the quality of the equipment and the cleanliness of the Center. Marianna took time with me, listened to my health issues/concerns and built a program that I believe I can stick to in order to achieve my goals. I just wanted to let you know how very pleased I am with the orientation session, Marianna, and the Center.Betty Connelly
