Constitution Day is an American observance that recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. The day is normally observed on Sept. 17, the day in 1787 that delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the document in Philadelphia, but because it falls on a Saturday this year JCC will celebrate on Sept. 20.

Come help us celebrate the U.S. Constitution and the principles of free government!
