Senior Adults

Seniors at the J know how to have a good time! From enjoying the company of dogs from Therapy Animals of San Antonio or Guide Dogs of Texas, to lunch with the Early Childhood kids, enjoying performances by the Israeli Scouts in the summer, attending luncheons with special guest speakers, watching exciting performances at the award-winning Sheldon Vexler Theatre, there is never a dull moment here!
