Bi-weekly Kosher Lunch Program
During the months of September through May, the Jewish Federation hosts two bi-weekly kosher lunches for all community members. Our Holiday Lunch celebrates the Jewish holiday of the month with hoiday-themed food and entertainment. Our Lunch 'n' Learn focuses on timely health topics that enhance the quality of our life. Dates for the Community Lunch are announced each month in the community calendar. You can RSVP on the Community Calendar event, or contact us.
ESL Language Class
The Jewish Federation provides weekly English classes for the Jewish-Russian community at the Federation every Tuesday from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM.
Classes focus on practical application of the English language and situations that class members encounter in their daily life. For example, what do class members need to know when they attend doctor visits? How do they interact with employees at the grocery store and other encounters on a regular basis?
For more information please contact Lizzie Fagen.
