Drucker Applauds Committee Vote to Authorize $13,500 Hotel-Motel Grant for Sid Jacobson JCC

(EAST HILLS, N.Y.) – Nassau County Legislature Deputy Minority Leader Arnold W. Drucker (D – Plainview) thanked his colleagues on the Legislature’s Rules committee for joining him in voting unanimously on Monday, May 6 to approve a $13,500 Hotel-Motel Occupancy Tax Fund grant for the Sid Jacobson JCC in East Hills. 


In addition to renovations and technological enhancements for the facility’s auditorium, the funds will be applied toward supporting JCC programs and community events like café nights, art exhibits, and storytelling and poetry slams. Past events at the JCC have featured countless films, authors such as Harlan Coban, Daniel silva and Kirsten Hannah; and guest speakers such as Joy Mangano and former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak; Broadway stars, and acclaimed storytellers.


A vote to provide final approval for the grant could come as early as the regularly scheduled Monday, May 20 meeting of the full Legislature.


“For so many Jewish families in Nassau County, organizations like the Sid Jacobson JCC are indispensable hubs of cultural programming, youth enrichment, and other essential resources that build a true sense of community,” Deputy Minority Leader Drucker said. “I am proud to support the Sid Jacobson JCC in its pursuit of Hotel-Motel grant funds that will empower them to expand their programming and serve more families in our region, and I look forward to their application receiving the unanimous, bipartisan support of the full Legislature in the coming weeks.”
