Due to the surge in COVID numbers and pediatric case, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our PJ Library Chanukah celebration, scheduled for this Sunday, Nov. 21st at the JCA. The health and safety of our community members is our highest priority, and we don't feel we can uphold that priority while holding an indoor event right now with young children who are not yet able to be fully vaccinated.


We are sorry to have to cancel the Chanukah party and look forward to gathering and celebrating safely with you and your families soon! Please stay tuned for future program announcements, and for our Chanukah Hub which will be published on our website www.mainejewish.org at the end of this week, with holiday recipes, music, craft ideas and more.

  • Programs are subject to change. See our website and announcements for the latest information.
  • All programs are held at the JCA, unless otherwise noted.
  • JCA closures will be announced via WCSH, WGME, WMTW, and on www.mainejewish.org and the JCA’s voicemail at (207) 772-1959.
