Teen pool party at the JCC August 28

Jewish teens throughout the Syracuse area are invited to an end-of-summer bash on Sunday, Aug. 28 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center on 5655 Thompson Rd., DeWitt. The pool party, open to high school students entering grades 9–12, will include swimming and a kosher barbeque.

This free event will be held rain or shine and is sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Central New York and the Sam Pomeranz JCC of Syracuse. Registration is required. Sign up may be made through each synagogue’s teen youth leader. United Synagogue Youth (Congregation Beth Sholom-Chevra Shas and Temple Adath Yeshurun), North American Federation of Temple Youth (Temple Concord) and National Conference of Synagogue Youth (Shaarei Torah Orthodox Congregation of Syracuse) are helping coordinate the event. Any Jewish teen in grades 9-12 who is not affiliated with a congregation can make reservations directly by contacting Sara Goldfarb at

“We’re excited to bring teens together from all the local temples for an evening of food and fun,” said Linda Alexander, president/CEO of the Jewish Federation of CNY. “It will be a great way for teens to wind down the summer and connect with friends both new and old.”

The pool party will take place after the JCC’s regular pool hours for its members, so attendees will have the entire pool deck area to themselves. Lifeguards will be present to ensure the safety of all swimmers. There will be a kosher barbeque, which will include a vegetarian option.
