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:
