The Adult Department promotes social, educational, recreational, and Jewish cultural programs. We encourage our adults and senior adults to learn, to grow, and to enrich their lives along with others who share common values. We provide classes in literature, current events, discussion groups, art classes, bridge lessons and a very special weekly lecture series. You can join our JCC Community Choir or take music lessons, or come in to play Canasta, Bridge, Scrabble, Mahjong or Gin Rummy.

Several times a year we travel together to theatres, museums, or special events. This year we began offering many new programs at the Holland Family Building in Buffalo as well as new and continuing classes at the Benderson Family Building in Getzville. We are always open to your suggestions for “new” programs or trips. Please call Karla Wiseman at 716-204-2257 at the Benderson Family Building in Amherst or Kathy Goodwin at 886-3172 x407 at the Holland Family Building in Buffalo for more information.
