The recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and Tony McDade opened wounds and reignited outrage for New Yorkers, and we stand in solidarity with Black and Brown communities in New York and across the country who are grieving. We share these words from NCJW, Inc., and NCJW Minnesota.

Due to COVID-19, Council House is currently closed to participants, members and volunteers with the exception of our nutrition program clients. At this time we continue to offer bagged meals and pre-packaged bags during our usual Community Kitchen and Food Pantry hours.

We are committed to keeping our nutrition program open and operating safely during the COVID-19 crisis.

Council Lifetime Learning Virtual Opportunities 

Council Lifetime Learning has suspended all in person programming until NYC’s “social distancing” restrictions are lifted. In the meantime, we are pleased to be able to bring our members virtual opportunities to keep learning, moving and connecting with like-minded peers while at home.
