The JCC of Central New Jersey is committed to the inclusion of people of all abilities, backgrounds, denominations, gender identity and religious affiliations into all of our programs. We are committed to making our Wilf Jewish Community Campus a barrier-free environment and our programs equally inclusive. We believe inclusion is an attitude, not an activity. Inclusion is belonging. If you or a family member would like to participate in a JCC program and feel you may need special accommodations, please contact Mallory Zipkin at email@example.com or 908-889-8800 x240. Whenever possible we will make reasonable accommodations to ensure accessibility for all. The JCC of Central NJ is a place where everyone is welcome.

Directors: Jacob Goldwasser Language: Hebrew with English subtitles Running Time: 98 minutes
This wholly engaging, tender family dramedy about the knotty relationship between an aging, irascible mechanic and the exuberant special-needs son he abandoned long before, both tested by tribulations that prompt complicated ethical and legal questions with profound ramifications, was nominated for eight Israeli Academy Awards including Best Film.
JCC Shadow Program
If you would like your child to participate in a JCC program and feel that he/she may need special accommodations, please contact Mallory Zipkin at firstname.lastname@example.org. The JCC will evaluate each program and child to try to successfully match your child with an appropriate shadow volunteer. We will look at each child on an individual basis to determine need and appropriateness of program. Please note that there will be an additional fee for a shadow if we are unable to provide a trained volunteer.
If you are a teen looking for special need training and volunteer opportunities, consider being a part of the JCC's Teen Action Service Corps (T.A.S.C.). Click here to learn more.
