The Katz Jewish Community Center, the local community center in Cherry Hill, is now offering special programs and activities for nonmembers as well as for its members. Officiated by local refs, the JCC is starting a Martin Tepper teen basketball league. This special basketball league is open for eight weeks long, and is open to the community for ages eight through eighteen. Beginning February 5, this league will take place every Wednesday night, from 7 to 9 p.m. This basketball league will be open to all members for sixty-five dollars, and open to all nonmembers for ninety dollars.

“Learn to Play the Piano at the J” is another special activity that is open to the public. This piano class is fifty dollars per hour, and is open to all ages. On every Monday and Wednesday night from 5 p.m to 10 p.m, this co-ed program is sure to give aspiring pianist a great foundation and much knowledge about pianos.

“PALS Walnut Street Theatre” is a place where young actors and actresses can explore their self-expression and social skills through drama. Taking place at the Katz JCC, this co-ed program charges a fee of 192 dollars. This class runs every Monday night from 5 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. The class began on Monday, January 6, and will continue until Monday, April 7.

“Mah Jongg for All Levels” is just another one of the many activities that the Katz JCC holds for members and nonmembers. Three to four players most commonly play Mah Jongg, a game that was invented in China. This contest, a game of skill and strategy, is similar to the card game rummy. From 10:30 a.m to 12 p.m on Thursdays, this fun activity is priced at 70 dollars.

Because the Katz Jewish Community Center is sponsoring so many programs, both local teen members and nonmembers can go out and enjoy themselves on a weekday.
