Some 100 Jewish Community Centers across the country are closed during the public health crisis caused by COVID-19.
In Portland, the Mittleman Jewish Community Center offers live virtual programs, video programs and, as a member of the Jewish Community Center Association of North America, links to programs developed at JCCs around the United States and Canada. The online programs were created for members but are open to the entire community.
MJCC has 1-6 live programs per day, including Yoga, Arts & Crafts, Dance Parties, Movement, Karate, Krav Maga, Zumba, Hebrew, Stretching, Book Club, etc. For instance, today, April 14, the Center is offering Gentle Yoga with Tara and a Krav Maga Techique Course for those wanting fitness activities. Thie MJCC Book Club will discuss On All Other Nights by Dana Horn. And you can brush up on you Hebrew on your lunch hour. While the programs are designed for members, they are open to anyone.
