Senior Adults

Seniors at the J know how to have a good time! From enjoying the occasional therapy dog visit, to lunch with the Early Childhood kids, enjoying special guest speakers, playing a good ol' game of "mahj",  or watching exciting performances at the award-winning Sheldon Vexler Theatre, there is never a dull moment to be had.
