What Causes Menopause?

The most common reason for menopause is the natural decline in a female's reproductive hormones. However, menopause can also result from the following situations:

Oophorectomy: This surgery, which removes a woman's ovaries, causes immediate menopause. Symptoms and signs of menopause in this situation can be severe, as the hormonal changes happen abruptly.

Chemotherapy: Cancer treatments like chemotherapy can induce menopause quickly, causing symptoms to appear shortly after or even during treatment.

Ovarian Insufficiency: Also called premature ovarian failure, this condition is essentially premature menopause. It happens when a woman's ovaries quit functioning before the age of 40 and can stem from genetic factors and disease. Only 1% of women suffer from premature menopause, but HRT can help protect the heart, brain, and bones.

Depression

If you're a woman going through menopause and find that you have become increasingly depressed, you're not alone. It's estimated that 15% of women experience depression to some degree while going through menopause. What many women don't know is that depression can start during perimenopause, or the years leading up to menopause.

Depression can be hard to diagnose, especially during perimenopause and menopause. However, if you notice the following signs, it might be time to speak with a physician:

  • Mood Swings
  • Inappropriate Guilt
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Too Much or Too Little Sleep
  • Lack of Interest in Life
  • Overwhelming Feelings

Remember, if you're experiencing depression, you're not weak or broken - you're going through a very regular emotional experience. The good news is that with proper treatment from your doctor, depression isn't a death sentence. And with HRT and anti-aging treatment for women, depression could be the catalyst you need to enjoy a new lease on life.

Hot Flashes

Hot flashes - they're one of the most well-known symptoms of menopause. Hot flashes are intense, sudden feelings of heat across a woman's upper body. Some last second, while others last minutes, making them incredibly inconvenient and uncomfortable for most women.

Symptoms of hot flashes include:

  • Sudden, Overwhelming Feeling of Heat
  • Anxiety
  • High Heart Rate
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness

Typically, hot flashes are caused by a lack of estrogen. Low estrogen levels negatively affect a woman's hypothalamus, the part of the brain that controls body temperature and appetite. Low estrogen levels cause the hypothalamus to incorrectly assume the body is too hot, dilating blood vessels to increase blood flow. Luckily, most women don't have to settle for the uncomfortable feelings that hot flashes cause. HRT treatments for women often stabilize hormones, lessening the effects of hot flashes and menopause in general.

Mood Swings

Mood swings are common occurrences for most people - quick shifts from happy to angry and back again, triggered by a specific event. And while many people experience mood swings, they are particularly common for women going through menopause. That's because, during menopause, the female's hormones are often imbalanced. Hormone imbalances and mood swings go hand-in-hand, resulting in frequent mood changes and even symptoms like insomnia.

The rate of production of estrogen, a hormone that fluctuates during menopause, largely determines the rate of production the hormone serotonin, which regulates mood, causing mood swings.

Luckily, HRT and anti-aging treatments in Byram Center, NJ for women work wonders for mood swings by regulating hormone levels like estrogen. With normal hormone levels, women around the world are now learning that they don't have to settle for mood swings during menopause.

Weight Gain

Staying fit and healthy is hard for anyone living in modern America. However, for women with hormone imbalances during perimenopause or menopause, weight gain is even more serious. Luckily, HRT treatments for women coupled with a physician-led diet can help keep weight in check. But which hormones need to be regulated?

  • Estrogen: During menopause, estrogen levels are depleted. As such, the body must search for other sources of estrogen. Because estrogen is stored in fat, your body believes it should increase fat production during menopause. Estrogen also plays a big part in insulin resistance, which can make it even harder to lose weight and keep it off.
  • Progesterone: Progesterone levels are also depleted during menopause. Progesterone depletion causes bloating and water retention, while loss of testosterone limits the body's ability to burn calories.
  • Ongoing Stress: Stress makes our bodies think that food is hard to come by, putting our bodies in "survival mode". When this happens, cortisol production is altered. When cortisol timing changes, the energy in the bloodstream is diverted toward making fat. With chronic stress, this process repeatedly happens, causing extensive weight gain during menopause.

Low Libido

Lowered sexual desire - three words most men and women hate to hear. Unfortunately, for many women in perimenopausal and menopausal states, it's just a reality of life. Thankfully, today, HRT and anti-aging treatments Byram Center, NJ can help women maintain a normal, healthy sex drive. But what causes low libido in women, especially as they get older?

The hormones responsible for low libido in women are progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone.

Progesterone production decreases during perimenopause, causing low sex drive in women. Lower progesterone production can also cause chronic fatigue, weight gain, and other symptoms. On the other hand, lower estrogen levels during menopause lead to vaginal dryness and even vaginal atrophy or loss of muscle tension.

Lastly, testosterone plays a role in lowered libido. And while testosterone is often grouped as a male hormone, it contributes to important health and regulatory functionality in women. A woman's testosterone serves to heighten sexual responses and enhances orgasms. When the ovaries are unable to produce sufficient levels of testosterone, it often results in a lowered sex drive.

Vaginal Dryness

Often uncomfortable and even painful, vaginal dryness is a serious problem for sexually active women. However, like hair loss in males, vaginal dryness is very common - almost 50% of women suffer from it during menopause.

Getting older is just a part of life, but that doesn't mean you have to settle for the side effects. HRT and anti-aging treatments for women correct vaginal dryness by re-balancing estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. When supplemented with diet and healthy living, your vagina's secretions are normalized, causing discomfort to recede.

Fibroids

Uterine fibroids - they're perhaps the least-known symptom of menopause and hormone imbalances in women. That's because these growths on the uterus are often symptom-free. Unfortunately, these growths can be cancerous, presenting a danger for women as they age.

Many women will have fibroids at some point. Because they're symptomless, they're usually found during routine doctor exams. Some women only get one or two, while others may have large clusters of fibroids. Because fibroids are usually caused by hormone imbalances, hysterectomies have been used as a solution, forcing women into early menopause.

Advances in HRT and anti-aging medicine for women give females a safer, non-surgical option without having to experience menopause early. At Global Life Rejuvenation, our expert physicians will implement a customized HRT program to stabilize your hormones and reduce the risk of cancerous fibroid growth.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis symptoms are much like the effects of PMS, and include pelvic pain, fatigue, cramping, and bloating. While doctors aren't entirely sure what causes this painful, uncomfortable condition, most agree that hormones - particularly xenoestrogens - play a factor.

Endometriosis symptoms are much like the effects of PMS and include pelvic pain, fatigue, cramping, and bloating. While doctors aren't entirely sure what causes this painful, uncomfortable condition, most agree that hormones - particularly xenoestrogens - play a factor.

Xenoestrogen is a hormone that is very similar to estrogen. Too much xenoestrogen is thought to stimulate endometrial tissue growth. HRT for women helps balance these hormones and, when used with a custom nutrition program, can provide relief for women across the U.S.

 Sermorelin Byram Center, NJ

What is Sermorelin?

Sermorelin is a synthetic hormone peptide, like GHRH, which triggers the release of growth hormones. When used under the care of a qualified physician, Sermorelin can help you lose weight, increase your energy levels, and help you feel much younger.

 HRT Byram Center, NJ

Benefits of Sermorelin

Human growth hormone (HGH) therapy has been used for years to treat hormone deficiencies. Unlike HGH, which directly replaces declining human growth hormone levels, Sermorelin addresses the underlying cause of decreased HGH, stimulating the pituitary gland naturally. This approach keeps the mechanisms of growth hormone production active.

  • Benefits of Sermorelin include:
  • Better Immune Function
  • Improved Physical Performance
  • More Growth Hormone Production
  • Less Body Fat
  • Build More Lean Muscle
  • Better Sleep

What is Ipamorelin?

Ipamorelin helps to release growth hormones in a person's body by mimicking a peptide called ghrelin. Ghrelin is one of three hormones which work together to regulate the growth hormone levels released by the pituitary gland. Because Ipamorelin stimulates the body to produce growth hormone, your body won't stop its natural growth hormone production, which occurs with synthetic HGH.

Ipamorelin causes growth hormone secretion that resembles natural release patterns rather than being constantly elevated from HGH. Because ipamorelin stimulates the natural production of growth hormone, our patients can use this treatment long-term with fewer health risks.

Benefits of Ipamorelin

One of the biggest benefits of Ipamorelin is that it provides significant short and long-term benefits in age management therapies. Ipamorelin can boost a patient's overall health, wellbeing, and outlook on life.

When growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland using Ipamorelin, clients report amazing benefits. Some of those benefits include:

  • Powerful Anti-Aging Properties
  • More Muscle Mass
  • Less Unsightly Body Fat
  • Deep, Restful Sleep
  • Increased Athletic Performance
  • More Energy
  • Less Recovery Time for Training Sessions and Injuries
  • Enhanced Overall Wellness and Health
  • No Significant Increase in Cortisol

Fil-Am owners of ‘unlicensed’ nursing home charged with endangerment

An adult care center in New Jersey owned by Fe Caliolio and Rolando David is under investigation for allegedly being an unlicensed facility that is not allowed to take care of people with dementia, a report by Spartaindependent.com said.

Caliolio is known to the Fil-Am community as Fe Martinez, the four-time president of the Philippine Independence Day Council, Inc. since 2013. Caliolio and David, former assistant secretary, are partners.

The Byram Detective Bureau initiated an investigation at the Claremont Adult Daycare Center after receiving a notification that several elderly patients who appeared to have dementia did not appear to be well.

The investigation began on June 9 at the center, which is located at 238 Route 206 in Byram Township. Township construction officials made the observation while conducting a routine inspection of the facility.”

Byram Township is in Sussex County in northern New Jersey, some 60 miles northwest of New York City.

The paper identifies the owner-operators of the facility as Fe M. Caliolio and Yolando M. David (sic). The two “were charged with the following offenses or conspiracy to commit the following offenses for housing nine elderly dementia patients at an unlicensed facility in Byram Township: Endangering the Welfare of an Incompetent Person, Causing or Risking Widespread Injury, and Deceptive Business Practices.”

The bureau received information that “at the time of inspection, the current business operating the facility did not have a certificate of occupancy to run a business,” the report said.

“As the investigation evolved, investigators learned that the facility was unlicensed in the State of New Jersey to operate an adult daycare facility, assisted living facility, or nursing home.”

This development draws renewed attention to the controversy over PIDCI and allegations of lack of financial transparency made by certain personages in the Fil-Am community. PIDCI is the organization that organizes the annual Philippine Independence Day parade on Madison Avenue. Martinez has strongly denied PIDCI funds were unaccounted for when she was the head of the organization.

Under investigation: The Claremont Adult Daycare Center in Byram Township in N.J.

Community leader and philanthropist Loida Nicolas Lewis noted that PIDCI has been run “directly or indirectly by the couple Fe Caliolio and Rolando David for many years up to the present time.”

“I hope the Consul General Elmer Cato would finally look into how the by-laws of the PIDCI have been amended to limit the membership of the PIDCI to perpetrate their hold on power,” she added.

The Fil-Am learned that the Philippine Consulate has been informed about the news report and is not making any statement.

Fiesta In America’s Fernando Mendez echoed the caution aired by some in the community. He said, “They are still under investigation. This is the USA and they have the right to a fair trial.”

A search of the New Jersey government websites the Department of Treasury and the Department of Health did not yield any results for Claremont Adult Daycare Center. @The Filam

Work on century-old Roseville Tunnel in Andover to advance Sussex County rail service

ANDOVER — The light at the end of the Roseville Tunnel just might be the reconstruction of the more-than-century-old passageway that has held up re-establishment of the Lackawanna Cut-off and commuter rail service to Sussex County.

Rep. Josh Gottheimer visited the site of the long-proposed Andover station, just west of the tunnel on Monday to announce funds are now guaranteed for New Jersey Transit to move forward and take bids for the work to rebuild the tunnel.

The funds to support the proposed service expansion of the Lackawanna Cut-off and bring passenger rail to Northwestern New Jersey come from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill, approved earlier this year and signed into law by President Joe Biden.

With the guaranteed federal money to restore the tunnel, Andover and Sussex County can move forward with the associated project to buy land to rebuild and reroute a stream that flows under Roseville Road near the station.

The station on Roseville Road in Andover is to be the temporary end-of-the-line when passenger service begins, but Gottheimer said the federal money will also cover rebuilding the entire 28 miles of the Lackawanna Cutoff, allowing Amtrak to bring passenger rail service between New York City and Scranton, Pennsylvania, with stops along the way.

Andover Mayor Thomas Walsh showed Gottheimer the issues with the passing stream and noted the town's commitment to purchase the land for the project expires in June and the town has run out of extensions.

With the land purchase, the town can proceed with moving the stream. The county's work - replacing a small bridge - can be done without any additional land purchases.

In his remarks, Gottheimer chided New Jersey Transit for "drudging along for more than a decade" on the restoration of rail service from the southern tip of Lake Hopatcong, westward to where the Cutoff crosses the Delaware River in Knowlton Township in Warren County.

There are about 28,000 commuters a day to New York and eastern New Jersey from Sussex County and adjacent areas of the foothills of Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains, Gottheimer said.

"Sussex County residents have the longest commute of anyone in New Jersey, 38 minutes," he said, "And Vernon residents are said to have the worst commute in the entire state.

The restoration of the Lackawanna Cutoff, completed in 1909, has been on the books for several decades. Passenger service was stopped last century and rail service was discontinued in 1978.

The right-of-way was purchased privately but was never developed and the rails were pulled up and sold. New Jersey Department of Transportation took ownership of the right-of-way in 2001.

About a decade ago, NJTransit began to rebuild the railbed and laid track in a couple of places between Hopatcong and the tunnel, located adjacent to the northeastern corner of Andover's C.O. Johnson Park.

Issues with engineering studies and bidding on the restoration of the interior of the tunnel have since held up the project.

From the beginning of the cutoff's history, the tunnel has been problematic with rocks falling from the tunnel's roof onto the tracks.

The restoration has called for building a new ceiling to the 1,024-foot-long tunnel as well as installing modern communication links for commuters and train crews as they pass through the tunnel.

NJTransit has a bid that is good for six months, said its President Kevin Corbett after a meeting last week.

At that same meeting, Gottheimer told the board he supported the restoration project and moving to award a bid for the Rosevale Tunnel project. He noted that "unfortunately, this project has been subject to repeated delays and uncertain timetables with regulatory hurdles, property disputes and inter-agency negotiations over the last 15 years with no construction having occurred on the project since 2012."

Walsh said this is a "unique one-time opportunity for the residents of the state of New Jersey to receive 75% federal funding for the extension of what would be passenger service across state lines into Pennsylvania."

"Imagine what we can do if we had a way for more people to get here," Gottheimer said about stations in Sussex County.

Editor's Note: This story has been updated with a clarification to reflect Andover has used all its extensions with the agreement now expiring in June.

First Lady Tammy Murphy on Sunday joined "likely" break through cases confirmed during the omicron wave of COVID, as the continued pandemic prompted a third Walmart store in the state to temporarily close.

Murphy received a positive result on a rapid antigen test Sunday afternoon, according to the governor’s office, though she remained asymptomatic.

Gov. Phil Murphy and the rest of their immediate family had so far tested negative, and would continue to test regularly in the coming days.

The governor and first lady both are fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID, having received their most recent doses alongside three of their children in late November in Monmouth County.

The Murphys had taken rapid tests due to a “recent known, non-family contact in their home,” according to a written release, which did not give further information about when the known exposure had taken place.

The family had been out of state for the Christmas holiday, vacationing in Costa Rica until Thursday.

On Friday afternoon, the governor toured the federal COVID testing clinic in East Orange, which first opened to the public on Saturday.

As he is vaccinated and boosted, Murphy is not required to quarantine per CDC guidance, but he would continue to wear a mask in all public settings, the statement said.

Monday’s regularly scheduled state COVID-19 briefing would shift to a virtual format and stream online.

Required procedures for reporting, case investigation and contact tracing had been followed.

On Sunday, the state confirmed 24,710 new cases and 2,689 likely cases, based on PCR and rapid test results, respectively.

A day earlier, the state confirmed 28,635 new cases and 5,361 likely cases, based on test results for New Year's Day.

There also were 4,280 COVID patients hospitalized as of Saturday, including 595 in intensive care units statewide. Hospital data has been running a day behind for the past several weeks at least, on the state COVID dashboard.

On Monday, the Walmart location in Manville at 100 North Main Street closed its doors to allow for a deep-cleaning of the store, a spokesperson said in a written statement.

That follows similar, temporary closures of Walmart stores in Linden and Kearny last week.

“Everything we’re doing is for the well-being of our associates and the thousands of customers we serve daily, and in consideration of guidance by the Centers for Disease Control and health experts,” the statement continued.

The store also would be following CDC guidance for indoor mask wearing, regardless of vaccination status, “in public indoor settings in counties with substantial or high transmission.”

That includes the entire state, based on CDC data, as of Sunday.

LINDEN — The Walmart store on Routes 1&9 temporarily closed on Tuesday but a spokeswoman denied a report it was because of employees who have gotten sick.

A sign in the door said the store in the Legacy Square shopping center in Linden closed at 2 p.m. for "additional cleaning and stocking" and would reopen at 6 a.m. Thursday morning.

Store workers told NBC 4 New York and TAP Into Linden that over 90 employees tested positive for COVID-19. But Walmart spokeswoman Felicia McCranie told New Jersey 101.5 that the statement was made by an "uninformed employee.

McCranie said the closure was part of a company program in response to the recent spikes in COVID-19 cases.

"The store closing was a pre-emptive decision. We try to get ahead of things. We see COVID cases increasing in certain communities and have a team that reviews COVID cases based on what's happening in the community specifically. We work with the local health department to determine if its best to close to pre-empt potential outbreaks."

She said an outside company will be brought in to sanitize the store during the closure, which also gives workers additional time to restock shelves and prepare the store for reopening at 6 a.m. on Thursday.

The Linden Board of Health and New Jersey Department of Health on Wednesday morning did not respond to New Jersey 101.5's request for more information.

The state COVID-19 dashboard shows 1,664 new confirmed COVID-19 cases in Union County as of Wednesday.

Walmart stores in Bainbridge, Ohio and Olympia Fields, Illinois, were also temporarily closed this week. A store in Sanford, Maine was closed for the same reasons on Dec. 21. McCranie said no other stores in New Jersey are currently closed.

McCranie said that once the store reopens, employees will follow local and state mask mandates, including at Sam's Club stores, distribution centers and fulfillment centers.

Customers are not required to wear masks inside Walmart stores.

"When the store reopens Thursday, we will continue conducting associate health assessments, and all unvaccinated associates must still wear face coverings," McCranie said.

Walmart offers its employees a $150 bonus for receiving a full dose of COVID-19 vaccinations. The company also provides two hours of paid leave and up to three days paid leave should they experience an adverse reaction.

Omicron impact on COVID cases in NJ

As the COVID-19 pandemic approaches its third calendar year in New Jersey, some things have stayed true (hand-washing, advice to vaccinate) while others have evolved along with the latest variant (less monoclonal antibody treatments, new at-home anti-viral pills).

While results are still considered anecdotal as of late December 2021, NBC News reports people who are exposed to omicron appear to get sick faster and the most common symptoms might be slightly different than those of other variants.

In breakthrough cases among those fully vaccinated against COVID, infection with omicron appears to present as symptoms similar to a common cold — such as fatigue, congestion or runny nose and a cough, according to the same NBC report.

Why have cases spiked so high in late December?

Over-the-counter rapid tests have sold out in pharmacies, while testing clinics saw long lines of individuals, many asymptomatic, looking for some reassurance before family gatherings or travel in time for Christmas and New Year's.

Why have cases spiked so high in late December?

“I think the media should not send people in a frenzy,” CarePoint CEO Dr. Achintya Moulick said in a videotaped exchange with Hudson County View, regarding the latest COVID-19 surge on both sides of the Hudson River.

He added that pre-Christmas, the influx of hospital visits was largely outpatient through the emergency room.

Are there any new treatments against COVID, in time for omicron?

The Food and Drug Administration granted emergency use authorization for the first antiviral pill against COVID-19, made by Pfizer.

The drug, Paxlovid, is authorized for high-risk patients most likely to get severe illness, 12 years and older, each weighing at least 88 pounds.

Are there any new treatments against COVID, in time for omicron?

It was the first treatment for COVID-19 in the form of a pill that is taken orally, instead of by injection or infusion. Though it is expected to stay in limited supply for the near future, the pill can be taken at home, to reduce the risk of hospitalization and death.

A day later, the FDA authorized an antiviral pill made by Merck, molnupiravir, shown to have a 30% effectiveness rate against preventing hospitalization and serious illness among high risk COVID patients. That drug comes with a warning against use by pregnant individuals.

Much more sparingly than with previous variants, as two out of three brands have proven less effective against omicron, according to federal officials on Dec. 23.

Shipments of monoclonal antibody therapies made by Eli Lilly and Regeneron were paused, under further data from the CDC.

“Based on the changed genetic make-up of omicron, some treatments are likely to remain effective while others may be less effective,” according to the CDC.

The nation was awaiting more doses of a GlaxoSmithKline antibody treatment, which still has been working well to stave off hospitalization among high risk patients in their early phase of COVID infection.

What about COVID pre-exposure antibody treatment - is it different?

A newly authorized monoclonal antibody treatment made by AstraZeneca, called Evusheld, was recently authorized for use in immunocompromised patients, or those who have shown an adverse reaction to a COVID vaccination dose.

One dose may be effective for pre-exposure prevention in those patients for six months.

What about COVID pre-exposure antibody treatment - is it different?

The FDA emergency use for that treatment is very specific; pre-exposure treatment with Evusheld is not a substitute for vaccination in individuals for whom COVID-19 vaccination is recommended.

“Vaccines have proven to be the best defense available against COVID-19,"Dr. Patrizia Cavazzoni, director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, said in a written statement.

"We are in a very different place than we were a year ago — we have vaccines, we have boosters and we have all of the science that demonstrates the prevention/interventions like masking in indoor settings work to mitigate the spread of this virus," CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said while on The Today Show on Dec. 22.

The CDC previously said it “expects that anyone with omicron infection can spread the virus to others, even if they are vaccinated or don’t have symptoms.”

Nearly 75% of New Jersey's population, 5 years and older, was considered fully vaccinated as of Dec. 28, while 2.15 million boosters had been administered.

Current vaccines still are expected to protect against severe illness, hospitalizations, and deaths due to infection with the omicron variant.

What about mask-wearing?

Despite rampant social media fiction and false information, health officials around the world have long recommended mask-wearing as an effective tool to stem the spread of COVID-19.

As the presence of omicron has widened, so has global has that advice">advice to mask-up, including from the World Health Organization.

What about mask wearing?

Specifically, individuals are urged to upgrade their mask quality and materials to those with respirator designations such as N95, KN95 and in Europe, FFP2 (which stands for filtering face piece).

The idea of wearing cloth masks earlier on in the pandemic was largely intended as a stop-gap while the supply of better quality masks was prioritized for healthcare workers.

Scotch Plains – Community came together in the JCC parking lot on Sunday, May 15! Our Big Day Out member appreciation event was the first time in over two years that the whole JCC community gathered together! The weather was perfect as more than 1,200 adults and children came to enjoy the day, be with friends and celebrate a strong JCC community committed to the inclusion of all people.

The day kicked off in an incredibly meaningful way. The JCC community was privileged and honored to welcome former New Jersey State Senator Ray Lesniak who founded the Lesniak Institute for American Leadership (@LesniakInstitute) which develops the next generation of American leaders by teaching the principles of effective advocacy. He spoke about the vital importance of supporting of all of our residents and encouraged our community to take the Stand Up For the Other pledge. The pledge supports diversity, equality and inclusion – a central theme at the JCC – and challenges us to, “…stand up for the other and speak up to challenge bigotry in any form.”

After Senator Lesniak spoke, several bands took the stage. Golden Dimes, followed by Camp Yachad’s very own Shabbatones band and JCC member-band Higher Ground rocked the afternoon. Members parked their lawn chairs in front of the stage and enjoyed!

There were activities for children including chalk drawing, tie-dying, hula hoops, a giant Jenga, corn hole and rock painting to get everyone ready for summer 2022. The rock painting was a perfect way to remind everyone of Camp Yachad’s ROCKS philosophy where ROCKS stand for Ruach, Opportunity, Community, Kindness, Strength!

The most unique activity of the day was the community art mural. Local muralist Rich Janusz (@ryzartpaint) sketched out a JCC-themed mural and prepared it for the community as a giant paint-by-number picture. The JCC community – both adults and children – spent the afternoon painting. It was truly amazing to watch this piece of art come to life at the hands of JCC members! This finished community-created mural will hang proudly in the JCC lobby area!

JCC Board member and Early Childhood parent Heather Boneparth volunteered at the community art mural. “It was really cool to see everyone’s inner artist come out. My girls and I had fun putting our mark on it. It was truly a group effort to get this giant mural painted and it will be so gratifying to see it every time we walk into the JCC!”

There was an art show comprised of outdoor photos taken by JCC Club Connect participants. Club Connect is the JCC’s after school program for teens with disabilities. Adults enjoyed a Beer & Wine Garden in Wonderscape, the JCC’s new natural outdoor learning space, while Pop Country Singer Jessica Rose gave a great acoustic performance. The Gift of Life Marrow Registry, whose goal is to find a miracle life-saving match for everyone suffering from Leukemia and related diseases, was also at the event. About 20 people “swabbed” to join the registry. Participants feasted on pizza, mac ‘n cheese and Carvel ice cream. Vendors sold jewelry, baked goods, clothing and a variety of other fun items.

We could not have hosted this fabulous day without the support of our very generous sponsors including Atlantic Medical Group, Northfield Bank, Jill Skibinsky/Coldwell Banker, Tiffany Natural Pharmacy, Encon, Rauch Family Charitable Foundation, Investors Foundation, Romela Productions and many others! We are grateful for the support our sponsors provide in our commitment to community and being welcome and open to all.

“The JCC is all about building Jewish community and keeping it strong,” shared JCC member Debra Judd who was there with her children and grandchildren who are also members. “We had so much fun and loved being around all our JCC friends. Sunday was a perfect example of why we call the JCC our home away from home!”
