This is a critical time for us at AJA 50+. We are about to launch our first online fundraising campaign in support of one of the key components of our organization – Creative Connections.

Our weekly Jewish social and recreational program for cognitively well seniors, Creative Connections, offers a day program that includes lectures, music, gentle gym, a kosher lunch and so much more. Friendship, social connections, and fun activities are a highlight of the week for many. For more information, check out our Creative Connections page on our website.

AJA 50+, like many other small charitable groups in this city and in our country, is facing a significant shortfall in revenues as a result of decreased outside funding. Sources and agencies that have been very supportive in the past have turned down our applications this year and we find ourselves in a serious crunch. You can help.

We invite you to open your hearts – and your wallets – to help us keep this vibrant community and much-needed connection alive. Stay tuned for more details.

We thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity.

Hi everyone and welcome to AJA 50+’s brand new website! We launched the site on April 15, and following extensive design work, testing, and feedback from our members, we couldn’t be more pleased to roll it out. Kudos to Dan, Deb and Sheila for their tireless efforts leading up to the launch.

The site offers a vastly improved ease of navigation and will hopefully make your interactions smoother and more efficient. It is still somewhat of a work in progress, and we welcome your feedback at any time at

With Passover just days away, we wish everyone Chag Sameach, a happy and meaningful time with family and friends. During the holiday period over the next couple of weeks, please note that we will be taking a break, with our regular activities somewhat curtailed. If you are a member, please consult your weekly Agenda email for details.

If you would like further information regarding membership, please send us an email at
