Why We Exist
When I first started coming to the JCC I was not in a good place. I was recovering from an illness and was feeling alone. From the first moment I started coming to the JCC to do my daily exercises I felt like I belonged there.
I am not Jewish, and I knew very little about Judaism or the Jewish community of Calgary. After a few weeks of quietly doing my exercises and having brief chats with the lovely staff, I felt well enough to join my first Aquafitness class.
Since that time, I’ve improved my health tremendously and I now have a few friends I enjoy a coffee and snack with every week at the cafe. I participate in many of the programs and festivals that are always happening at the JCC.
I don’t know what I would have done without the JCC!
