Jewish Federation Launches JCCatHome Virtual Programming Initiative

The Jewish Federation of Greater Harrisburg temporarily closed its physical doors in Mid-March amidst the COVID-19 crisis, but is continuing to engage the community through its new JCC at Home Initiative, bringing virtual programming to tots, teens, adults, and seniors throughout the region.


An evolving schedule of the programming slate, which includes stories and crafts for children and community-sustaining video check-ins for all ages, can be found at


“Our staff at the Jewish Federation of Greater Harrisburg has worked together to ensure that our community is supported at this difficult time,” said Lori Rubin, Associate Executive Director.  “Our goal is to reach each community member through online classes, virtual hangouts, and by providing resources to enable everyone from toddler to seniors to engage with others. No one should feel isolated.”


In addition to in-house programming, the Federation has compiled a resource page of activities, workouts, and ideas for keeping busy, culled from all corners of the internet by staff members.
