Thank you for your continued support and patience as we implement our plans to reopen the J. We have had a successful first week of operations in fitness, tennis and aquatics, and we are now prepared to implement our next phase.

We are thrilled to share with you that effective Monday, June 15, we will reopen the Bertha Alyce School, Ellen Boniuk School in West Houston, Summer Fun at the J and Merfish Teen Center, and expand the use of the gymnastics facilities. Specific program details and our health and safety protocols for BAS, West Houston, Gymnastics and Summer Fun will be emailed later this week to all program participants.

Effective Sunday, June 14, individuals ages 13 and older will be able to utilize the fitness, tennis and aquatics facilities. We are also drafting plans and schedules for recreational swimming for families to be announced in the coming weeks.

Our Medical Advisory Group continues to focus on maintaining the critical health and safety our of community. Our partnership with you is critically important as everyone has a responsibility to ensure a healthy and safe environment. Note that we have hired a registered nurse to be on site at the J to support staff and children through the summer.

Thank you for your continued patience and support. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Joel Dinkin at  or Teri Greenblatt, Assistant Executive Director and coordinator all of our COVID-19 protocols, at
