IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING SWEET ON YOU FROM THE JCC

We are very sorry to report that The Sweet-on-You CafĂ© at the JCC will be closing at the end of this week. We recognize that having coffee, food and/or other kosher snacks available for purchase at the JCC is a convenience our members and other JCC patrons have rightly come to expect.  We have assembled a task force of board members & staff to evaluate suitable kosher food service alternatives.  As a temporary measure, beginning with the New Year, we expect to have bagels and other like snacks available for purchase during peak hours.  In this way, we hope the inconvenience caused by the departure of Sweet on You is kept to a minimum.


In order to take into consideration JCC member expectations and preferences regarding our food services, we have compiled a brief survey. Your input to the process would be most welcome. Just click on the link below and follow the simple directions. It only takes a couple of minutes to complete the survey.

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/agudathsholom


 

We appreciate your patience under these circumstances.  As always, if you have any questions, concerns or other viewpoints, please let us know.


Sincerely, 


Brian S. Kriftcher

President, JCC Board of Directors
