PJCC General Policies

PJCC General Policies

We are proud of our diverse, multicultural community guided by Jewish values (Shleimut) celebrating wholeness of body, mind, and spirit.

The below policies help us ensure that the PJCC remains a place where all are welcome. They help ensure your safety as well as the safety of other members and guests.

Dietary Guidelines

Please read the PJCC’s current kosher policies.


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. The PJCC does not tolerate any type of harassment—physical, verbal or sexual—of our members, guests or employees. The PJCC reserves the right to deny access to the facility and its programs to those who refuse to abide by our policies.

Privacy Policy

At the PJCC, we are committed to respecting your privacy and recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of any personal information you share with us. For additional information, please see our Privacy Policy.


No solicitations of a commercial nature are permitted on the PJCC premises. PJCC authorized vendors will conduct their business through PJCC personnel.


It is the responsibility of every individual, or his/her parent or legal guardian to provide health coverage while participating in all PJCC activities. The PJCC does not provide any accident or health coverage for its members or guests. As a reminder all Center Members sign a waiver of liability upon joining the PJCC.


For the security and safety of our members, the PJCC reserves the right to check personal belongings at the door and exclude or remove any person from the premises, or its programs, for any violation of our rules and regulations or for jeopardizing the safety and well being of others. Children 12 years of age and under must check-in at the Front Desk with a supervising adult or parent who will accompany them to and from classes or programs.

Lost or Stolen Items

The PJCC is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Lost and Found is located at the Welcome Center.

Cell Phones and Cameras

Cell phones are prohibited in the Byer Athletic Center locker rooms and fitness areas. Please observe the proper cell phone etiquette for the privacy and comfort of other members:

  • Keep phone on vibrate.
  • Find an appropriate spot to chat; we recommend the lobby, café, Hamlin Garden or outdoor pool deck (away from other members).
  • Talk quietly en route to that appropriate spot.
  • Cell phone use, photos, and videos are prohibited in the locker rooms.
  • Only photograph, video, livestream, and video chat in areas where other people’s images will not accidentally or intentionally be used without their consent. The PJCC also may request modification or removal of any use of the image, face, voice, or likeness of a PJCC employee, member, or guest at our campus.


There is no smoking or vaping allowed anywhere on the PJCC premises.

Alcohol, Marijuana, and Illegal Drugs

Possession and consumption of alcohol in any form is not allowed on PJCC premises, except when specifically authorized by the PJCC CEO for specific events or activities in specific areas of the PJCC. Anyone possessing or consuming unauthorized alcohol will be asked to dispose of it. Use of illegal drugs, narcotics, and marijuana on PJCC premises is strictly prohibited. Any observation of such use will be handled by the PJCC Security Staff.


There are no pets allowed on the PJCC premises, with the exception of registered guide and assistance dogs or pets involved with official PJCC programs.


Guests are welcome at the PJCC. All guests will be asked to sign the guest log at the Front Desk upon entering the Center. Guests wishing to use the Byer Athletic Center must sign a Guest Agreement, which includes a waiver of liability, and provide a valid photo ID each time he/she uses the facility. Center Members may bring a maximum of four guests per membership household to the Center at one time.

Guests 17 years of age and under require parent/legal guardian signature on the Guest Agreement for each visit and have access to Dan Cook Gymnasium and pools only and are not allowed on the fitness floor. Guests 12 years of age and under must be accompanied and supervised by an adult. Refer to Byer Athletic Center rules and regulations for guidelines and age restrictions. List of fees are available at the PJCC Welcome Center or online. [


Throughout the year, photographs featuring PJCC programs are taken during various activities for publication. The PJCC reserves the right to use all photographs, for both print and online materials, anonymously and without compensation, unless prior written notification is received. Members and guests may not take photographs without first obtaining permission from the PJCC.

Parking/Neighbor Relations

In an effort to be sensitive to our neighbors, there is no parking allowed in neighboring apartment building lots or the Foster City Recreation Center parking lot. Cars may be towed if parked on private property. Disabled spaces are only for those legally disabled and displaying a DMV-issued placard. Motorcycles must be parked in a regular parking spot. For your safety and the safety of other pedestrians, please observe all speed limit and directional signs at all times on campus and parking lots, as you do on city streets. PJCC is not responsible for lost or stolen items or damaged vehicles, and we strongly recommend not leaving valuables exposed in parked cars.

Insufficient Funds and Other Forms of Non-Payment

There is a $20 charge for any form of payment that is returned unpaid, including checks and electronic transactions.


Transportation for medical and dental appointments and for errands, such as food shopping is available as part of the Get Up & Go program.

The Center bus is wheelchair equipped.
