Jewish Learning, Engagement & Outreach
At the David Posnack Jewish Community Center, incorporating the values and culture of Jewish life is a core aspect of providing the highest quality programming to the community.
Jewish Life has been at the nexus of Posnack JCC programming. We have a strong history of cultural arts programs, including the Barry & Diane Wilen Jewish Book Festival, the Jewish Film Festival and the Jewish Music Festival.
In addition, Jewish content is infused to the other programs the DPJCC offers. Every Friday at 1:00 p.m. we have a short symbolic Shabbat ceremony in the Sports & Wellness Lobby for our members. We have Shabbat ceremonies for our year-round preschool, for our summer camp and for our senior lunches.
One of the new initiatives of the Department of Jewish Learning, Engagement and Outreach is to enhance the strategic partnerships between the DPJCC and Broward County’s Jewish organizations. We believe that the strength and future of the Jewish community can only be enhanced when we work to complement each other and support each other. If you have any ideas you would like to see added to our repertoire of community activities please let us know. And stay tuned for new and exciting opportunities as they are developed!
The David Posnack JCC is also home to a Rescued Czech Torah in our Holocaust Learning Center. Learn more about this remarkable piece of Jewish history.
