Meredith's story

I celebrated my Bat Mitzvah at the JCC in 1988. It was the perfect place for my coming-of-age because some of my earliest childhood memories were from the JCC – camp, youth group meetings, holiday celebrations.

As an adult, when I returned to Wilmington after five years in New York, I quickly re-established my community right here at the JCC. I got a job here as a reporter and later worked in public relations, political communications, and real estate. It is a place where I have flourished both professionally and personally, making countless friends along the way.

As a parent to two, it’s amazing to witness the central role the J has played in their lives, too – starting as babies in the Early Childhood Center. As they’ve grown, they’ve been active campers, including my son’s participation in the LIT program, where he not only gained independence, but also put himself out there as a leader. Two years ago, we celebrated his Bar Mitzvah at the J. When presented with a variety of options for his celebration, he was adamant about holding it at the J, the place where he feels most comfortable, most himself.

For over 100 years, the J has been there for families like mine – and yours. I know that in future decades, I will continue to look to the J as a vital source of fitness, social, and cultural activities. By supporting the J, you are ensuring that we can continue to offer programs that benefit people of all ages and backgrounds. I hope you will consider joining me by making a gift today.

Warmly,
Meredith Rosenthal
Siegel JCC member, parent, and donor

P.S. The J has been there for me every step of my life. I want the J to continue to flourish and to be that “home away from home” for everyone who comes through its doors, no matter their age, religion, or background. Please join me and make a gift today.
