Senior Programming

Who are we? 

The Jewish Living Center (JLC) is a fresh approach to how we look at aging. It is a holistic attitude about how we view ourselves as we age. We want to be the place that you come to when you want to learn about something new and exciting. When you want to try out the newest trend in movement and exercise. Where you want to gather with friends and make new ones. Where you can feel comfortable being you. Where technology is just a touch away. Where adventure will take you places. The Jewish Living Center (JLC) and all of its programs are open to those who are 60 and better and are supported through a generous grant from the Jewish Senior Services Supporting Organization (JSSSO) and through your campaign dollars.
