WELCOME TO J ADULTS!

Join us for VIRTUAL 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.
