PJCC General Policies
The Center Café at the J conforms to a dairy/vegetarian/fish menu. The poolside barbeque serves only kosher meats on non-dairy buns. Shellfish and pork products are not permitted on the premises. During the eight days of Passover each spring, the café is closed in order to avoid serving any leavened foods.
The Peninsula Jewish Community Center (PJCC) is an equal opportunity agency and does not discriminate based on religion, ethnic origin, age, gender, disability or sexual orientation.
