Americans today are living longer than ever before, are more active, and are in better health. The Federation's jGROUP program is geared for our active 55+ community as a way to engage with your Jewish community, learn something new, connect with people, and just have fun!

Programs include speakers, cultural events, movies and so much more.

For more information on how you can participate, contact Sophie Novinsky at 410-730-4976 x103.

Here what seniors in the community have to say:


" I have recently attended jGROUP programs for the first time and have been very impressed with them. My friend and I enjoyed it immensely! I intend to attend other jGROUP offerings in the future, and will recommend them to all my friends."

-Carol Lewis


"I loved seeing our youngsters do Shabbat with us!  It brought me so much pleasure to hold their little hand and eat challah and drink grape juice."  

-Resident of Heartlands Village


"Doing an art project and the Shabbat Tots brought a smile to my face.  It truly made my day!"
-Residence of Vantage House

Mitzvah Mornings


As Howard County ages, more Jewish older adults are moving to independent and assisted living communities. Intergenerational Shabbat brings our youngest Jews together with these adults to celebrate Shabbat together with an interactive morning of music, movement and stories.


Join us this year on November 20 and March 31,
