Dear Members,
Before we flip the calendar on another wonderful year at the J, we want to share what we
have accomplished over the past 12 months:

– Hundreds of kids made new friends, tried new things, and created lifelong memories at J Day Camps and Camp Sabra
– We celebrated the amazing 20th anniversary of our Marilyn Fox Building in Chesterfield
– We witnessed much success in our fitness centers, as our members created healthy habits and achieved long-term goals
– We created another opportunity for adults with disabilities to shine with the addition of a second annual Theatre Unlimited production

And so much more!

But we never stand still at the J, and we can’t wait to bring on the adventures planned for this winter and spring. We’re hard at work finalizing details for our amazing summer camp experiences. Our award-winning New Jewish Theatre continues its season with three productions between January and May. The IN Program continues to grow and produce amazing results for young adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. We’re ready to welcome more than 1,000 kids for another incredible basketball season.

We are also ready to introduce a new version of our annual fitness challenge! If you’ve seen the small, colorful tiles on TVs in the fitness centers and studios, you’re already familiar with MYZONE. Beginning January 15, our members will be able to join our new 100 Day Fitness Challenge. You’ll need a MYZONE tracker and the desire to be your best! If you’re unfamiliar with heart-rate training, I can’t recommend enough that you schedule an appointment with one of our wonderful personal trainers to learn all about it. You’ll feel motivated, excited and ready to take your fitness to another level. You can also attend the Challenge kickoff on January 14 or 15 to learn more.

I’ve mentioned only a sampling of the programs we’ll be offering in 2018. I hope you’ll take a look through this guide, and chat with our staff to create a wonderful experience for yourself and your family at the J.

Happy and Healthy New Year to all!

Lynn Wittels
