WELCOME TO J ADULTS!

Join us for virtual and in-person programs that focus on fitness and wellness, education, and social experiences that bring us together online!

 

In an effort to engage as many members of our community as possible, the Alpert JCC, in partnership with JFCS of Long Beach & West Orange County has tablets and devices available for those seniors who do not have access to devices. Seniors will need to provide their own internet access. To obtain one of these devices, please contact Susan Paletz at spaletz@alpertjcc.org

 

The J Adult Program is made possible through a generous grant from Jewish Long Beach.

HAPPINESS AND HUMOR

RETURNS OCTOBER 8

We’re so excited for the return of our free, monthly Happiness & Humor group! All seniors are invited, so bring a friend and get ready to laugh!

BOOSTING YOUR IMMUNITY

NOW PLAYING

Barbara Ravid, JCC member, and Registered Dietitian will walk us through several ways to boost your immunity with certain foods, lifestyle changes, and healthy eating.

EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

The role of the Alpert JCC has always been a place where people can gather – where people welcome and take care of one another. Through these difficult times, where physical distancing is how we take care of one another, we are committed to continuing our Jewish Life & Culture programming virtually to keep us all connected in spite of these unique circumstances. That continues to be our mission and we are working hard to keep this promise! Every month we host different classes, discussions, trivia nights, and lots more!
