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, attending luncheons with 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. Additionally, the JCC offers a wide variety of classes optimized for seniors 65+, as well as new classes that meet only once or twice.
