FOR Daphna Krupp, her daily workout (excluding Shabbat) at the Jewish Community Center (JCC or “J”) of Greater Baltimore has become somewhat of a ritual. She not only attends fitness classes but also engages with the instructors and plugs the J’s social programs on her personal Facebook page.
“It’s the gym and the environment,” says Krupp. “It’s a great social network.”
Krupp, who lives in Pikesville, Md., is one of an estimated one million American Jewish members of more than 300 Js around the country.
