The Jewish Community Center (JCC) of Middlesex County’s new Marion and Norman Tanzman Center for Lifelong Living is projected to be completed in the fall of 2020.
The JCC officially broke ground back on May 19, for the expansion. Dorothy Rubinstein, the JCC’s executive director, told the New Jersey Jewish News, “Our JCC has a unique spirit and an unusually cohesive staff, board of directors, volunteers, and people who were young when their families joined the JCC,” noting also that much of the professional staff has been with the JCC for many years. “The children grew up here and remained and now are passionate about ensuring its future.”
The center is expected to be completed by the fall of 2020, the NJJN continued. “It will provide an additional 10,000 square feet housing “state-of-the art, safe, accessible, and welcome new program spaces for the growing number of senior adult and baby boomer participants,” said Glinn. These include new areas for social gatherings, a kitchen, an outdoor courtyard, and program rooms.”
For nearly 35 years, the JCC of Middlesex County has served the community, providing cutting edge programs for adults of all ages, children and families and those in need. The JCC serves those in Edison, Metuchen, Woodbridge, Highland Park, Monroe Township and surrounding communities, as well as the entire Middlesex and now Monmouth County communities. Its membership has grown from 2,000 to 8,200.
The new wing will provide state-of-the-art, safe, accessible and welcoming new program spaces for the growing senior adult and Baby Boomer participants, including social spaces, a new kitchen, an outdoor courtyard and new program rooms.
The project will see existing buildings renovated with new lighting, flooring, walls, ceilings, and enhanced security features. “The JCC’s Bright Beginnings preschool for youngsters 2 to 5, which has a perpetual waiting list of 50-60 children for the 180-student school, will get new classrooms and space for special-needs programming and teacher preparation in the new wing,” reported NJJN.
The Community Campus facility features a state-of-the-art wellness center, a five lane swimming pool with locker rooms and a sauna, a gymnasium, an accredited preschool, a childcare center, meeting rooms and a multipurpose room for performances and lectures. Membership is shared between the JCC and the YMCA.
Norman Tanzman was a New Jersey state assemblyman and state senator in the 1960s and 1970s. “He was a founder of the real estate development and management firm of Jacobson, Goldfarb and Tanzman,” noted centraljersey.com. “The couple founded the Marion and Norman Tanzman Charitable Foundation and they were founding benefactors of the JCC of Middlesex.”
