JCC & American Red Cross Annual Blood Drive
Jun 28 @ 1:00 pm – Aug 22 @ 6:00 pm

The uncertainties of the times in which we live require a new commitment to maintain a five-10 day community blood supply.  That’s why the Katz JCC and the American Red Cross are teaming up to help ensure that a safe and adequate blood supply is available when needed.     Now more than ever the American Red Cross needs your support.  Please continue supporting your family, friends, neighbors and coworkers by donating blood on Friday, August 22, from 1:00 – 6:00 PM in the Katz JCC Auditorium

It only takes a small amount of time – and one small pinch – to become a hero to someone in need. Giving the “Gift of Life” is a mitzvah and one way to help those in need.  To set up a time to donate, please call Josh Cutler, Program Director at 609-822-1167 x 138 or email JCutler@jccatlantic.org.

Robert Watson Returns to the Milton & Betty Katz JCC
Aug 7 @ 7:00 pm

Robert Watson headshot2MARGATE – Professor and author Robert P. Watson, Ph.D. returns to the Milton & Betty Katz Jewish Community Center on Thursday, August 7 at 7 p.m., 501 N. Jerome Avenue, Margate.

Professor Robert P. Watson, Ph.D will present a lecture titled the “Nazi Titanic,” an exploration into the little known event in the final hours of the Holocaust.

“It’s an intriguing story behind Nazi propaganda, Goebbels and the plight of the holocaust survivors including the decision about what should be done with survivors in the days after Hitler committed suicide,” according to Watson.

“Professor Watson is an amazing historian, speaker and educator from Florida State University and we are happy to host him once again,” Katz JCC CEO Jack I. Fox said.

Watson has been a professor for 22 years and is currently serving as Professor and Director of American Studies at Lynn University and Senior Fellow at the Florida Joint Center for Citizenship. As an author, Watson has published over 30 books, two encyclopedia sets and roughly 150 scholarly articles, essays and book chapters on American history and politics. Several of his books are in international translation and have been nominated for awards by national academic associations.

His popularity in the area has prompted us to create a special limited seating VIP Dinner to “Meet the Author” prior to the lecture beginning at 5:30 p.m., according to Fox.

The VIP Dinner is limited to 32 seats.

The three course Kosher dinner will be catered by Foodarama of Bensalem, Pa.

Guests will enjoy dinner, an intimate question and answer session, front row seating to the lecture and a signed copy of his latest book. Tickets to the VIP are $150 per person.

Lecture tickets are $35 for JCC members and $45 for non-members.
