Center offers virtual programs for older adults

Posted

The Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix Center for Senior Enrichment hosts ZOOM programming exploring music, movement and more during the month of December.

“When COVID became a reality and JFCS had to close our physical CSE, we worried about the isolated older adults in our community,” states Jennifer Brauner, CSE director. “We are thrilled to present online, enriching programs and to extend our reach throughout the Valley.”

Mondays will showcase Movement with Michelle Dionisio and offer a Schmooze Parlor as well.  Everyone is invited to bring information and ideas to share with others at the parlor, which is hosted by Janet Rees.

Tuesdays offer a different class each week, including Marshall Shore, Arizona’s Hip Historian, the Curriculum Theatre, Jane Przelica presenting Southwest lore, Creative Writing and also a Yiddish club. Wednesdays include weekly chair yoga classes. Thursdays focus on the arts, with music from Nicole Pesce and from the Phoenix Conservatory of Music, talks from the Phoenix Art Museum and a three-week program on opera as well as a book club.

Friday mornings will include a Welcome Shabbat program with inspiration offered from local rabbis and leaders of the Jewish community.

All classes are open to the community. Most are free and all are available on Zoom.  For additional information or to register, contact Jennifer Brauner at seniorcenter@jfcsaz.org or 602-343-0192.

The JFCS Center for Senior Enrichment is partially funded by the Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix, the Area Agency on Aging and individual donors.
