Applications for the 2018-19 J-Ticket are now available. Pick one up at the Jewish Community Board of Akron, the Shaw JCC, The Lippman School, or online at jewishakron.org./j-ticket.
JCBA introduced the J-Ticket two years ago to grow Jewish Akron families’ engagement in the Jewish Akron community. It significantly reduces the cost of a respective school year at the Mandel Early Childhood Education program at The Shaw JCC or The Lippman School. The "bundle of services" also includes JCC membership, membership at a participating synagogue, and two weeks of Shaw JCC traditional Jewish day camp or the Mandel ECE Summer Playhouse.
Each J-Ticket also includes a program voucher gift card to be used for fees for any program/event/activity in the Akron Jewish community held by any participating Jewish organization/agency/synagogue in Akron.
The J-Ticket is open to all Jewish families, regardless of financial need. Families with one child in The Lippman School and one child in the Mandel ECE may purchase one J-Ticket in each program for a total of two J-Tickets. No family may have two J-Tickets in the same program. An application is needed for each child.
This year, as part of a J-Ticket purchase, participants must make a contribution of at least $180 to the JCBA’s 2019 Annual Campaign, by Dec. 31, 2018. The program voucher gift card may not be used to satisfy Annual Campaign contribution.
The J-Ticket is made possible by funds from the Albert L. and Janet A. Schultz Endowment for Jewish Programming.
