New JCC Aquatic Complex to Open in 2018

By: Bruce Friedlander, Jewish Federation of Omaha Board President

(9/28/17) At the June 5th Jewish Federation of Omaha Annual Meeting, Tom Fellman announced upcoming renovation plans for our campus. I am excited to announce construction of a new outdoor aquatic complex. Over the next several months, you will see construction vehicles working on redesigning the space. The image above shows a rendering of the outdoor aquatic complex slated to open in 2018.

This is the first part of Phase One of an ongoing campus renovation plan. Additional details will soon be forthcoming. We are grateful for the leadership, commitment and passion of Tom Fellman, Howard Kooper and Michael Staenberg. We are excited to enhance our campus, not only for today, but for generations to come.
