Put on your thinking caps.

Join us on Thursdays at Temple Sholom in the city for a day devoted to learning. You’ll meet with other interested older adults from the JCC for two classes in the morning and one class in the afternoon. Learn more about history, current events, art history and literature. Bring your lunch for a relaxed break in between classes. Open University’s thematic lectures and discussions are engaging and thought-provoking.
