Sarah Gottesman Lubin was an avid crafter who especially enjoyed the soft arts of quilting and needlepoint. The Sarah Gottesman Lubin Program for Creative Arts and Crafts was established in her memory at the JCC so that others could explore and enjoy the exciting world of crafts and culture. This endowment provides opportunities for people to experience the sheer love and joy of creating something of beauty with their own hands. Pre-registration required for all creative arts classes.

Private lessons available in some of the creative arts programs. Please call 201-408-1457.
