The JCC 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 Dinners will kick off on June 26. The weekly dinners will be held on Mondays at 5 p.m. A variety of live entertainment will be included each week as part of the dinner program. This JCC summertime tradition will run through August 21.

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 delighted to get our senior dinner program going again this summer," said Marci Erlebacher, JCC of Syracuse executive director. "It offers seniors a very warm and inviting social atmosphere to enjoy a delicious kosher meal in the company of friends."

The JCC's weekly summer dinners are an additional component to its 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 $4.00 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 register for a lunch or dinner, call 315-445-2360.
