We’re hardly one to toot our own horn, but we got a nice notice in the mail this week that the Washington DCJCC will receive three awards at the JCC’s of North America’s Biennial Conference. Our Development Department was recognized both for its million dollar annual campaign, and the special January 12, 2007 Celebration of Anniversaries which recognized Arna Meyer Mickelson’s 20 years of service as Executive Director and the celebration of 10 years of the Washington DCJCC at 16th and Q.
We’ve also been recognized for Innovation and Excellence in Programs and Services for our J On Demand series. The series is targeted at young adults, aged 18-35 and programmed by a committee of 16th Street J staff members in that age range. Past events have included an evening with Judah Friedlander and a sneak-preview of The State comedy troupe film The Ten. This month J On Demand presents March Monster Madness, featuring a staged reading of The Playdoh Golem on March 22 featuring Shuligans–the worlds first and worst post-punk Bar Mitzvah band; and An Evening with Max Brooks, author of the Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead and World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War on Monday, March 24.
