Active Adults

Research proves the lifelong importance of exercising body and mind. For adults 60+, the JCC offers resources to keep you engaged. Drawing on decades of experience — and input from JCC members — activities are available that address the social, cultural and physical needs. At the facilities both Uptown and in Metairie, you can join exercise classes, discussion groups, or game clubs. The program is rounded out with guest speakers, performances, and trips to local cultural centers. Most of all, you celebrate the joy of giving and growing in a supportive circle of friends. For Uptown information, email Rachel Ruth or call 897-0143. For Metairie information, contact Wendy Goldberg or call 887-5158.
