Holiday Hours

Shabbat and the Jewish Holidays
The Stamford JCC fosters an inclusive Jewish environment that helps build community and allows for people to find multiple paths for connection within our Jewish community. We welcome diversity of belief, practice, and observance while recognizing shared common values that are integral to Judaism. We encourage the use of the JCC as a special place for families to be together. In that spirit, the JCC observes the following Shabbat (Sabbath) hours and Jewish holiday closings:

Shabbat
The JCC is open on Saturdays from 7:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Jewish Holidays
The JCC is closed to all business on the following holidays, regardless of the day of the week on which they fall:
• Erev Rosh Hashanah Early closing at 4 p.m.
• Rosh Hashanah – First Day Closed all day
• Rosh Hashanah – Second Day Closed all day
• Erev Yom Kippur (Kol Nidre) Early closing at 4 p.m.

• Simchat Torah
• Passover
• Intermediate Days of Passover
• Shavuot

No business involving the exchange of money will be conducted on Shabbat or Jewish holidays. Regular JCC enrichment classes will not be scheduled or conducted on Saturdays or Jewish holidays so as not to exclude those individuals who could not participate. Additionally the JCC Sara Walker Nursery School will remain closed on all Jewish holidays.

Personal training, private swim instruction and group exercise classes may be available; however, financial arrangements for those activities will need to have been made prior to the start of Shabbat or the holiday. As a service to those families who depend upon them, the JCC's KinderPlace and KidsPlace child care programs will be open.
