Senior Day at the MJCCA

Sam and Jackie Goldberg were volunteers during the event.

More than 100 people recently attended Senior Day at the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta (MJCCA) presented by AgeWell Atlanta, a collaborative partnership to help older adults and caregivers navigate the aging process. Senior Day is a quarterly event that brings seniors from around Atlanta to experience a variety of social, educational and fitness programs.

Highlights of the day included: a speaker presentation given by John Eaves, congressional candidate and third-generation black Jew; Tu B’Shvat activities that included a dance party given by the Israeli Shinishinim; and activities where participants prepared care packages for veterans and made masterpieces themed around Valentine’s Day.

The next AgeWell Senior Day at the MJCCA is scheduled for Monday, May 11. AgeWell founding partners are the MJCCA, Aviv Older Adult Services of Jewish Family and Career Services, Jewish Home Life and Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta. For more information, visit atlantajcc.ama.
