The JCC of Syracuse’s Monday evening senior kosher dinners will kick off for the summer starting on June 1. The weekly dinners will be held on Mondays at 5 p.m. and feature a hot, nutritious and well-balanced kosher meal. Live entertainment by musicians and other performers is included as part of each dinner program. This JCC summertime tradition will run through August.

“We are very pleased that our summer dinner program for seniors will soon be starting up again,” said Marci Erlebacher, JCC of Syracuse executive director. “The dinners are very popular and provide a wonderful outlet for seniors to socialize while enjoying a delicious kosher meal.”

The summer dinner program is an additional component to the JCC’s successful Bobbi Epstein Lewis Senior Adult Dining Program. The program’s weekday senior lunches will continue at noon Tuesdays through Fridays during those weeks the summer dinners are held. The lunch program offers seniors age 60 and over a nutritious and well-balanced kosher meal for a $3.50 suggested contribution.

The JCC’s Senior Adult Dining Program is the only senior nutrition program available outside of New York City serving kosher meals five days per week. The program is funded in part by the Onondaga County Department of Aging and Youth and the New York State Office for the Aging and Administration for Community Living. For more information, and to RSVP for a lunch or dinner, call 315-445-2360.
