The Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center of Syracuse is a great place for seniors to enjoy a hot, nutritious and well-balanced kosher meal on Monday evenings all summer long. The JCC’s Dr. Morton and Mrs. Libby Maloff Summer Senior Dinner program will kick off on June 20. The weekly dinners will be held on Mondays at 5 p.m. at the JCC of Syracuse on 5655 Thompson Rd in DeWitt. A variety of live entertainment will be included each week as part of the dinner program. This JCC summertime tradition will run through August.

The JCC’s summer dinners, open to seniors age 60 and older, are offered for a suggested contribution of $5 per person. Registration is required by the Wednesday before each dinner by calling 315-445-2360.

“We’re very excited to be starting up our senior dinner program again this summer,” said Marci Erlebacher, JCC of Syracuse executive director. “This wonderful gathering allows seniors to get together and socialize over a delicious kosher meal.”

The JCC’s weekly summer dinners are an additional component to its successful Bobbi Epstein Lewis Senior Adult Dining Program. The dinner program was recently renamed after the late Dr. Morton and Mrs. Libby Maloff thanks to a generous gift from their surviving family members.

The weekday senior lunches at the JCC 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 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.
