Convening community and providing an opportunity for people to connect is what the JCC of Greater Baltimore does best. This was the impetus for creating our Community Block Party.
Owings Mills, MD (PRWEB) April 08, 2015
Join us for a fun family weekend activity at the Rosenbloom Owings Mills Jewish Community Center (JCC) on Sunday, May 31, 2015 from 11:00am to 4:00pm. The ball fields will be transformed into a bustling street fair when the Center launches its second annual Community Block Party. The fields will be alive with dozens of family-friendly activities, musical performances on three different stages, a food and craft marketplace and, best of all, multiple opportunities to learn about the local organizations serving our community.
According to Barak Hermann, the JCC’s president, “Convening community and providing an opportunity for people to connect is what the JCC of Greater Baltimore does best. This was the impetus for creating our Community Block Party.”
Over 60 local organizations are already on board to participate in this fun family weekend activity and many more are expected to sign up. Activities include: large inflatables, balloon art, face painting, carnival games and more. Music and entertainment will be provided throughout the day, with performances on three stages including Jordan August Band and Charm City Klezmer.
The event is chaired by Andy Attman, Jen Stein, and Zhanna Maydanich, with assistance from the JCC’s Vice President, Paul Lurie. Lead sponsors to date include Stevenson University and LifeBridge Health. Silver sponsors are Astro Jump, Baltimore Greenberg Gibbons, Department of Rec and Parks GymSource, and Lothorian Pools. Media sponsors include ABC2/WMAR-TV, Mix 106.5 Radio, and the Baltimore Jewish Times.
The JCC is a constituent agency of The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore whose support and funding have helped to make this event possible.
The JCC or the “J”, operates three facilities in the Baltimore metropolitan area and Camp Milldale in Reisterstown, Maryland. Both the Rosenbloom JCC in Owings Mills and the Weinberg JCC in Park Heights offer state-of-the-art fitness facilities and highly-regarded preschools as well as enrichment programming for youth, teens and adults. The Downtown Baltimore JCC (DBJCC) in Federal Hill is the newest J location providing programming and drop-in play for families with young children.
Respectful of diversity in thinking and expression, the J is a common meeting ground for Jews and non-Jews, and, in keeping with its Jewish values, it remains 100% committed to enhancing the general welfare of the total community.
