We help seniors stay engaged and connected to the community with our many social and educational programs.
At JSSA, we believe that as you age, it’s more important than ever to stay active and connected to your community. We’re here to help you do just that. In partnership with local community organizations, we offer many opportunities for you to meet your neighbors, form fulfilling relationships, learn, and grow.
We are proud to provide the following programs to help you stay social as you age:
Coming of Age (COA) in MD
We work with our partners at Bender JCC of Greater Washington and the Jewish Council for the Aging to offer regular social and educational engagements for Montgomery County residents age 60+. There is no membership fee to join this community, and neighbors of all faiths and ethnicities are welcome. Each excursion or activity is planned thoughtfully to ensure that mobility and transportation concerns do not prohibit neighbors from joining.
*During COVID, Coming of Age is still hosting unique and lively programming for our neighbors virtually.
