Virtual Vatikim 

Vatiki is a program for seniors, age 60 and up.  It includes a weekly lunch and learn on various topics ranging from self-care to history to entertainment. Our Rabbis provide content, as well as outside visitors and experts. Each weekly lunch and learn program features a speaker or entertainment, a KOSHER buffet, and great company all for $5 a person.

We have occasional day trips, sometimes in partnership with Temple Emanuel’s Friendship Circle, Jewish Family Services or with Beth David’s Sisterhood.
