Frequently Asked Questions
|Have your hours/programs changed due to Covid-19?|
Yes. In an effort to mitigate the risks surrounding Covid-19, we've adjusted our building hours and other aspects of our operations such as the shift to virtual formats (via Zoom or Facebook Live) for some programming, limiting the number of participants for in-person programs, and regular cleaning of shared equipment and spaces.
Health screenings are required for everyone entering the JCC. This includes a quick temperature and symptom check. Masks are also required to be worn by anyone ages two and older at all times - The only exception is while in the pool or to briefly eat or drink.
For a full list of current building hours and program updates, you can visit lvjcc.org/COVID.
|Do I have to be Jewish to come to your facility/programs?|
We welcome people of all faiths, cultures, and backgrounds. Diversity is a strong part of our identity and represents who we are as a community. Though our programs are run on the foundation of Jewish values (kavod/respect, tikkun olam/healing the world, tzedakah/charity and giving back, gemilut hasadim/acts of loving kindness, and rahamanut/compassion) everyone is welcome to participate in our programs here at the J.
|Do I have to be a member to participate in activities at the J?|
You do not need to be a member to participate in the majority of JCC programs. However, as a JCC member, you receive exclusive benefits not available to the public. These include usage of the pool and fitness center, unlimited access to our basketball court, squash courts, health clubs with sauna and steam rooms, free weekly group exercise classes, two free personal training sessions, as well as access to our JPerks program which gives JCC members discounts at local businesses, and discounted JCC member pricing on programs such as camp, afterschool, fitness and rec, aquatics, special events and more.
