Looking for family fun in downtown Scranton? I admit, I was recently surprised to find out about the wealth of programs available at the Jewish Community Center of Scranton, located at 601 Jefferson Avenue. For over 100 years, the Jewish Community Center of Scranton has been a place for Lackawanna County residents to meet new people, participate in a wide-range of activities, and develop lifelong friendships. The JCC is a fitness, health, social and community center for all ages and here is a listing of just some of the upcoming evnets and programs–remember that all are open to the public.
