"The J is such a special part of our lives. Max loves daycare so much! The teachers are caring and great for his development. It’s clear from talking to both volunteers and professionals involved at the J, or just being in the building, there is a genuine care for the entire community - spanning ages, backgrounds, interests and cultures. It’s meaningful to be a part of an organization that is doing so much for our community today and will continue in the future to be a source of support for our family and the dynamic Jewish population of Northern Virginia."
Yelena and Derek Lingel
"We believe in the J's ability to bring the entire Northern Virginia Jewish community together. We appreciate the 21st century vision of the Capital Campaign to invest in outreach beyond the Center's walls in order to strengthen the Jewish community and reach new individuals and families. As the sponsors of the NoVA PJ library, we have seen the success of welcoming young families seeking connection. Partnering with congregations, we believe the Pozez JCC can be the "Jewish Center" of our thriving Northern Virginia Jewish life."
Rabbi Amy and Gary Perlin
"As one of the founding families of the Pozez JCC, its growth and vitality are very important to us. We see this donation as an investment in the future of the J. The Smith-Kogod Cultural Arts Center will be one more step in the continuing effort to provide and expand the J's offerings to the Jewish community of Northern Virginia."
Dotty and Al Fuchsman
"It brings great joy to see the Pozez Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia offer an exhaustive range of services, programs, and activities to meet the needs of a huge diverse ethnic, religious, socioeconomic and multi-generational populace. None of the above would be available if it were not for the outpouring of support from previous donations from Jewish Federation, major endowments and very generous individuals. Therefore, my husband and I dig deep, and sometimes beyond our means, to ensure the continuance and expansion of our Jewish Community Center. Please join us in this endeavor."
Joyce C. Grand and Bernard Grand, M.D.
"The J has always been a part of our lives. Our parents, Mimi and Max Rosenberg, helped establish the J, centering their lives around the friends they met here and the programs to which they were dedicated. We decided to honor their love of the J with a family gift to the Capital Campaign. At the time, we did not know that the dedication of the Adult Lounge entrance would be one of the last times that our family celebrated together before our father passed away, adding an extra layer of meaning for us. The Capital Campaign will help ensure the J is a place where future generations can come to make connections and memories."
Shelly Rosenstein, Jan Rosenberg, Paul Rosenberg
"Our mom, Suzanne Weisberg Brooks, is very connected to the J and helped bring the Adult Services programming to the Gainesville area. When we decided we wanted to do something special for her birthday, she mentioned a gift to the Capital Campaign would be very meaningful. We are thrilled to dedicate a theatre seat in her honor as a lasting tribute."
Jessica B. Bailey and Jason Brooks
"This building – and, more importantly, the people in it – has been like a home to me over the last 10 years. J employees and members alike have stood by my side through some pivotal moments in my life…I want to show my appreciation."
