Take Out Days

Take Out Day

Tired of cooking?  We certainly are.  Do you want to support local restaurants and the Bender JCC during this difficult time?  We do too.  Join us for “Take-Out Days” where the Bender JCC will partner with a different local restaurant – kosher, non-kosher, and everything in between –  for a “win-win-win” night:

  1. You get to support the JCC (% of sales to benefit the Bender JCC)
  2. You get to support a local restaurant
  3. You don’t have to cook
