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.
We are happy to work with individuals and families to provide accommodations, to the best of our ability, to ensure that everyone can participate meaningfully. We can provide the following accommodations during most on-campus programming and can discuss other accommodations as needed. Please email Beth Mitchell, Director of Inclusion and Diversity at firstname.lastname@example.org. We require a minimum of 2 weeks prior to an event to request accommodations.
