Senior Day returns to the Marcus JCC from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, May 14.
The program for Atlanta-area residents 60 and older is a combined effort of the Marcus JCC, Jewish Family & Career Services, Jewish Home Life Communities and the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta. Each participant gets to choose three activities and have a kosher lunch.
The choice of activities:
- Session 1 — Music by Italian trio Il Volo; elder law Q&A with lawyer Chris Brannon; or a lesson on preparing an agave cheesecake for Shavuot.
- Session 2 — An education on vitamins; gardening in a Mason jar; Israeli folk dancing with Meliss Jakubovic; or the agave cheesecake lesson.
- Session 3 — Israel talk with emissary Tamar Gez; a low-impact BodyVive workout; or a sample Melton class.
The fee is $5 for the day; register by May 7 by visiting atlantajcc.org/seniorday or calling Earl Finley, the JCC’s coordinator for active mature adults, at 678-812-4070. That Monday is also the deadline to arrange free transportation through the JF&CS Alterman JETS service by calling 770-677-9339.
“We have an exciting day planned with a wide selection of activities so local seniors can spend a meaningful afternoon learning new skills, exercising their minds and bodies, and spending time with friends old and new,” Finley said. “We are happy to bring a great day of superior programs to Atlanta’s senior community.”
