Also introducing The COVID-19 Taskforce

Since the last print issue was published in January, the world has become a very different place, but what remains constant is the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center’s dedication to helping audiences live their best life, welcoming guests, and connecting the community-at-large to Jewish culture.

About the Center for Jewish Culture
The San Diego Center for Jewish Culture (CJC) is housed at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center, JACOBS FAMILY CAMPUS in La Jolla, and is the largest local institution solely dedicated to exploring the Jewish experience through the arts.

The mission of the San Diego Center for Jewish Culture is to offer an array of entertaining and enriching cultural, educational and artistic programming which brings the community together to connect with Jewish heritage, identity, experiences and values. CJC is committed to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for San Diego's entire community.

The CJC offers a wide variety of programs that explore cultural identities and perspectives, promote cross cultural understanding, foster ideas of cultural appreciation and respect, and highlight human themes of family, tolerance, compassion and hope. 

The COVID-19 Taskforce
In early March, JCC CEO, Betzy Lynch was sharing her concerns about the uncertainty around this new virus and how the pandemic would affect the work of our JCC.

"I was lamenting about the lack of available information and the speed at which the information that is available changes". 
Said Lynch to JCC Board Member  Bill Rastetter. 

The next day, in partnership with JCC Board Chair Phil Ginsburg, the COVID-19 Taskforce was formed to help navigate what was assumed would be a short term shut-down. This Taskforce is comprised of experts in science and medicine, finance and business, customer relations and fundraising, employment law and other legal matters. It is the combination of volunteer leaders and staff that is the strength of our JCC, volunteers and professionals partnering together to make the very best choices for the community.

Feedback is needed
In reflecting on what the “new” version of community building would look like, there is another group of stakeholders that must have a say in what happens next for JCC and that is YOU. They need your feedback about your needs and desires for the future engagement point for their work. 

Here is a link to a quick survey to offer your opinion and to help their Taskforce, Board and staff make the right decision for the community.
