Opportunities for seniors to remain active and vital abound at our Center. The 5400 Club, Enrich for Life and Food for Thought,  the Grand Tones and many other programs keep older members circulating in and contributing to the identity of the Weinstein JCC and the community at large. Be a part of one or all of our enriching and engaging activities for active adults such as cultural activities including films, concerts and lectures.
