Seniors Club celebrates winter holidays with music

by | Jan 21, 2019 | Other News

Approximately 50 seniors gathered at the Simon Family JCC on Wednesday, December 19 for the Seniors Club lunch, installation of the 2019 board, and singalong with Michal Newman, Hebrew Academy of Tidewater music teacher and musician.

Seniors throughout the community attended, including a group from Brith Sholom.

Members of YAD—Young Adult Division of United Jewish Federation of Tidewater—Ashley Lemke, Sharon Debb, and Erika Kaplan, helped serve a delicious hot meal from the Cardo Café. Sharon Rosenbaum, Jody Laibstain, and Judy Laster of Jewish Family Service also assisted diners and talked briefly about the elder services offered by JFS.

With songbooks in hand, the group joined Newman for a rousing singalong (with harmonies!) of oldies, but goodies. A raffle of the table center-pieces ended a festive afternoon.

The Seniors Club is open to members of the JCC who are at least 55 years old. In addition to monthly meetings with speakers or entertainment, the group plans quarterly day trips. For more information, contact Wayne Gordon, membership chair, at 426-3297 or
