Chaverim is the Federation’s weekly kosher luncheon and social program for seniors. This program, which has been in operation for more than 25 years, provides seniors a social opportunity to socialize and enjoy programs that range from speakers and discussion groups on a wide range of topics to musicians and dance troupes. For more information please contact us
In addition, the Holiday Outreach Program provides holiday baskets to seniors in the community at Rosh Hashanah, Chanukah and Passover. This visit provides an opportunity to connect with seniors who do not get out and participate as they did before.
For the recently retired the Federation offers Knosh and Knowledge a once a month gathering at a local coffee shop to socialize and hear from guest speakers on a wide range of topics.
