Learning Throughout Life

Our Adult programming offers a wide array of enriching opportunities, including our premiere program Learning Throughout Life (LTL), providing a vast spectrum of offerings. Lectures focus on a variety of topics including history, religion, music and literature, provides many opportunities to expand one’s knowledge and pique one’s passion.

Our Nosh ‘N Knowledge series, Various Sounds of Music, Movie Mavens, Art Appreciation programs, Bridge classes, AARP Smart Driving, Current Event classes, and Jewish/secular holiday celebrations round out our offerings. LTL is a high caliber program offering a smorgasbord of alternatives, helping participants to maintain independence and control, as well as to pursue new or former interests. We meet the intellectual, social and emotional needs of our fast growing adult population. Many of our seniors credit the JCC and the Learning Throughout Life program with assisting them in remaining vital in their own homes and communities.

Expanded offerings of adult programs include various series programs in: Film, Healthy Living and dealing with aging parents, Job Hunting After 50, Men’s Group, Sundays @ the J speaker series, which has hosted such luminaries as award winning author and journalist Jonathan Alter, and scholar Dr. Gary Rendsburg, Ph.D., adult writing workshop, Readers On The Go, “OPQ – Opinions, Politics and Questions” Learning series, and our acclaimed Nosh ‘N’ Knowledge program. Nosh’N’ Knowledge, one of the many elements of our Learning Throughout Life program, is the perfect mind and body connection – with food for both components. Our attendees are intellectually challenged and socially interactive. The lectures on varied subjects (history, literature, music, etc.) are substantial and enriching. The lunch component offers an opportunity for individuals to keep in touch with old friends and form new attachments.
