Gary S. Lipman
CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
Dear YJCC Members and Friends,
Things are looking up at the YJCC!
By now, hopefully you’ve seen
this new sign in front of our
building and agree that our
project to revitalize and
reinvigorate your YJCC is well
on its way to success. We’re
making major improvements
in our facility and investing
funds in the development of
all kinds of new programs to
meet the ever changing needs
of our members and program
participants.
This winter is an exciting time
to be at your YJCC with new
programs to serve nearly every
age group. From the latest
in group fitness to all new
programs for adults; from the
enhanced curriculum in our
center for early childhood
When you and your family come
to your YJCC, you’re not just
coming to a gym, a pool, or a
preschool…you’re coming to a
community, one in which each
and every voice counts and one
where you can make a difference.
There are great things happening
today at your YJCC…and with
your continued engagement,
even more great things are
coming. Come visit and see our
new roof…not just the one on
top of our building, but the roof
that your YJCC extends over our
entire community.
I’ll look forward to seeing you
this winter. Stop by and say hi
and share your ideas with me or
with any member of our staff.
We’re here to serve you and your
family, so please let us know how
we can best add value to your
YJCC membership.
With best wishes for 2014,

our mission
The Bergen County YJCC strives to develop the potential within each
individual and enrich and strengthen families and community through
meaningful experiences at every age and stage of life. While embracing
Jewish values and heritage, the YJCC maintains an inclusive environment,
celebrating diversity and welcoming the community at large to enhance
mind, body and spirit through cultural, educational and recreational
opportunities, without regard to race, religion or ability.
our mission at work
Early Childhood Education
“…enrich and strengthen families”
Our Mission
2
A study by Mark Rosen, Ph.D. of the Cohen Center for Modern Jewish Studies at Brandeis University outlined the high
significance of the first years of a child’s life in cementing family patterns and friendships. Who needs a study?! Ask anyone whose
child attended our David Rukin Early Childhood Center Nursery School and you’ll hear about the “friends for life” their children
have made. In addition, the children, along with their parents, put down roots in a community of warm, caring individuals.
Our nursery school excels at nurturing our children, enabling them to experience Judaism with all their senses while they explore,
create, question and learn about themselves and the entire world. Self-awareness and self-esteem are developed while intellectual
curiosity and critical thinking skills are cultivated, setting the groundwork for a lifetime of educational success.
For information about our Nursery School, please contact Amy Nelson at (201) 666-6610, ext. 5662, [email protected]
Special Needs
“…maintains an inclusive environment…without regard to race, religion or ability”
The YJCC offers children and teens with special needs year-round opportunities to reinforce school experiences, develop social
and life skills and enhance self-esteem through creative, social and recreational activities. Innovative classes specifically for
children with Autism Spectrum Disorder model social interaction, language and communication, and behavior by utilizing “peer
buddies” and age-appropriate activities. Our S.A.I.L. program for those over 21 propels young adults with developmental
disabilities towards independence and personal growth.
Significantly, it is the philosophy of the YJCC that has enabled our special needs program to flourish. We celebrate diversity,
maintain an inclusive environment and seek new ways to open our doors to all. This spirit of inclusion benefits not only those with
special needs but our entire community.
To volunteer in our Special Needs department, please contact Gina Wellington at (201) 666-6610, ext. 5810, [email protected]
Senior Adults
“…meaningful experiences at every age and stage of life”
Successful aging, studies show, is dependent upon healthy relationships along with healthy eating and exercise. Our senior adults
have come to the right place! We offer opportunities to get involved, express creative inclinations, exercise the mind and body and
achieve a sense of belonging to a very special community of people.
The YJCC’s senior lunch program serves nutritious, hot, kosher lunches twice a week at a nominal cost. The senior lunch,
subsidized through the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey and the U.S.D.A., is more than a meal: Gathering around the
table provides a great opportunity to socialize with peers. Monthly blood pressure check and regular nutrition programs are
provided in partnership with The Valley Hospital. Body, mind and spirit are nourished at the YJCC.
To volunteer in our Senior Adult department, please contact Linda Ripps at (201) 666-6610, ext. 5782, [email protected]
early childhood
Nurturing children while supporting parents is the mission of the YJCC’s David Rukin Early
Childhood Center. While our Early Childhood program is located in its own wing with bright,
colorful classrooms and an exceptional outside playground and play area, the children benefit
from the entire YJCC facility, including the gym and pool. And they are fortunate to be in an
atmosphere of warmth and community to which the YJCC is dedicated.

David Rukin Early Childhood Center Nursery School
Our Nursery School provides an introduction to formal education that establishes a love of learning so pivotal to future
educational success. Our Nursery School is licensed and accredited by the State of New Jersey Department of Human
Services, Division of Youth and Family Services. YJCC membership is required to participate in Nursery School.
New YJCC families enrolling 2-year-olds receive one year free membership.
Philosophy We enable and empower your child to develop physically, socially and cognitively, while nurturing your child’s selfawareness, self-esteem, intellectual curiosity and critical-thinking skills in a safe, caring environment. Curriculum Our developmentally appropriate curriculum recognizes individual differences and the unique pace at which each child develops. Readiness
skills are developed in reading, writing, math and science, while children express themselves creatively through art, music,
movement and language. Staff Experienced, certified teachers maintain membership with the National Association for the
Education of Young Children (NAEYC), the nation’s largest organization for establishing excellence in early childhood classrooms.
Their dedication, creativity, enthusiasm and affection for children are hallmarks of our program. Facility Our nursery school
wing, with brightly decorated hallways, colorful classrooms and an exciting experiential playground is augmented by the YJCC’s
gymnasium and indoor pools. Our 3- and 4-year olds swim weekly under the supervision of the YJCC’s professional staff. Jewish
Heritage Our children learn about Jewish customs and participate in Jewish holiday celebrations. They learn respect for others,
compassion and kindness, especially through various collections for disadvantaged families. Our Parents: Communication
and Participation We strive to provide regular avenues for communication and are always available to hear your comments and
concerns. We recognize that communication helps create a partnership with parents that enhances the education of each child.

Project Open Hearts, Open Homes
provides respite and comfort to young
Israeli teens affected by violence and
war. Every summer since 2002, teens have
come to our community, thanks to the sponsorship
of the YJCC's Project Open Hearts, Open Homes. They spend
three weeks with their American peers in Teen Travel Camp,
living with nurturing host families and making connections to
a Jewish community far from their homeland. Family reaches
out to family. And as our brothers and sisters in Israel face
conflicts and threats, we offer an alternative to their children:
three weeks in Bergen County—three weeks of fun.
To learn about being a Project Open Hearts, Open Homes,
host family or about opportunities for your children, ages 12-14
to attend Trailblazers camp (in partnership with
the 92nd Street Y ) with our Israeli visitors, contact
Wendy Fox at (201) 666-6610, ext. 5820.

civilization and how Jews related to Islam
and its culture. Original texts will be
studied in translation as well as Jewish
sources that refer to how Jews reacted to
that religious tradition. New students are

Pool Rules and Regulations
Aquatics
24
Children 6 years old and younger must be accompanied by an adult (18 or older) who is in the water with them at all
times. Children between 6 and 9 may be in the kiddie pool without an adult, but must be accompanied by an adult
when in the main pool. ALL children 12 years of age or younger must be accompanied by an adult who remains in
the pool area at all times to ensure proper supervision.
For everyone’s health and safety and in order to maintain the cleanliness of the pools and deck area, please
remember the following:
All persons must take a soap shower before entering either the main pool or the kiddie pool. New Jersey State
Health Department codes require the enforcement of this regulation in ALL public and private swimming facilities in an effort to
minimize the bacteriological levels and optimize our method of disinfecting and sanitizing the pools.
No street shoes, sneakers or strollers are permitted on the pool deck. Dirt and bacteria are tracked onto the pool
deck, creating an unsanitary environment for swimmers who are walking barefoot.
Anyone with hair shoulder-length or longer should wear a swimming cap to help prevent clogs in our filter and
vacuum system.
Disposable diapers are not permitted in either pool. Children not yet toilet trained must wear swim diapers underneath
swimsuits and are not permitted in the main pool. Disposable diapers disintegrate when they become saturated with water. They
are then sucked into the filter system and vacuum, clogging them and causing damage. When an accident occurs, it is necessary to
close the pool in order to properly clean it.
Bandages, band-aids and medicated patches may not be worn in either pool. Once wet, these coverings fall off and
clog filters and vacuum. They are also unsanitary and possibly infectious. Any person with open cuts, wounds or blisters is not
permitted to use either pool.
Inflatable toys, rafts, swimmies, tubes, etc. are not permitted in either pool. Children who depend on these devices
are at risk for serious injury if the device fails or the child gets out and goes underwater. Kick boards, barbells, noodles, etc. are
only to be used in their intended manner and are NOT lifesaving devices. If being used improperly, a lifeguard will remove them
from the pool.

CHILDREN’S CLASSES / 6 YEARS & OVER
25
Little Sharks Swim School Classes
Swimming is difficult—but worth the effort to learn properly. Please
note that your child may have to repeat a class in order to master the
required skills as described below. Water safety and rules are taught
according to age and must be followed in and out of the water.
Nursery-Age Classes
(3-5 years)
Dogfish (Kiddie Pool) This introductory class, for children with little or no
knowledge of swimming, builds confidence
in the water without parental assistance.
Children learn basic front crawl, back
float and back crawl. Ability to do a front
and back crawl at least 3 feet with a
flotation required to advance.
Parent/Child Lessons
(All Kiddie Pool):
Aquatics
26
Tadpole 1 (6 to 18 months) Parent
must accompany child in the water.
Child must wear underwater diaper.
Class is designed to help not only the
child get comfortable in the water, but
also help the parent understand
necessary safety measures.
Tadpole 2 (12 months to 3 years)
Child gets comfortable in the water,
learns to blow bubbles, and begins to
understand how to move feet and arms
in the water. By end of the class, the child
should be more comfortable in the water,
as well as being able to blow bubbles.
Tadpole 3 (12 months to 3 years)
Much like Tadpole 1, becoming more
comfortable in the water is a goal, as is
being able to fully submerge face in the
water, with the help of the parent. By end
of the class, the child should be
extremely comfortable in water without
the parent so he or she can be ready to
transition to the main pool.
Angel (Main Pool) Swimmers master
the front and back crawl/stroke for 5 feet
with a flotation and be able to back float
for 15 or more seconds. To advance,
child must be able to complete front and
back crawl/stroke for 10 plus feet and
back float for 30 seconds with a flotation.
Mako (Main Pool) In this final class for
nursery age, children will continue to
learn swimming safety as well as advancing in distance with front and back crawl.
Beginning sessions will utilize a flotation
device and master swimming a distance
of 15 plus feet with front and back crawl.
To advance, child should be able to swim
3 feet with no flotation.
School-Age Classes
(6 and up)
Zebra (Main Pool) This class is for
beginners of school-age who have little to
no swimming ability, but also for those who
have passed Mako. Skills learned include
getting used to having face in the water
and moving forward. Freestyle and backstroke will be introduced, with the use of
a flotation. To advance, child should be
swimming with no flotation on front and
backstroke for a distance of 10 feet, as well
as be able to jump into the pool feet first.
Sandtiger (Main Pool) Child works
on increasing distance and stamina,
finalizing and finishing freestyle, backstroke and sidestroke with no flotation,
jumping into the deep end of the pool,
and swimming to the side with little help
from the instructor. To advance, child
should be able to swim freestyle and
backstroke one length of pool each stroke
(no stopping), and half a length sidestroke.
Bull (Main Pool) Distance in freestyle
and backstroke are the main goal of this
class. The child also will be introduced to
treading, diving and submerging underwater fully, along with the final two
major competitive strokes, breast stroke
and butterfly. Most of class will take place
in deep end of the pool. To advance, 2
lengths of freestyle and backstroke must
be completed, 10 meters of breast stroke,
5 meters of butterfly.
Nurse (Main Pool) Child will work on
breast stroke and butterfly, plus stamina
for freestyle and backstroke as he/she gets
ready for our most advanced class. To
advance, child must be able to do at least
4 lengths of the pool using either of the
strokes continuously.
Blunt Nose (Main Pool) This is the
most advanced level of swimming.
Butterfly and breaststroke are further
perfected to the ability of the child. We’ll
also spotlight flip turns, competitive
diving and starts. Child should be able
to swim 3 lengths of freestyle and backstroke, 1 length of breaststroke and butterfly. This class will get your child ready for
competitive swimming, if desired.
Private and semi-private classes available
for adults, too.
