Adults & Seniors

The JCC’s Seniors & Adults Department strives to involve adults in the community who have a variety of interests, and provides a close-knit group for seniors to dine, socialize, exercise, learn and be entertained.

Our Bobbi Epstein Lewis Senior Adult Dining Program offers affordable kosher meals five days a week to all seniors age 60 and older, serving over 6,000 kosher meals every year.

The program also conveys Jewish culture through celebration, fellowship and weekly Shabbat experiences. Many seniors also spend hours at the JCC playing mah jongg and attending the Neulander Family Sports and Fitness Center’s senior adult group exercise classes.
