We are stronger together

Get out and socialize with friends old and new while enjoying a delicious kosher lunch and a stimulating and entertaining program designed for adults 55+.

The word KOACH (ko’-akh) means strength in Hebrew. KOACH reflects the strength and vigor of this region’s Jewish community as a partnership between the JCC and 5 Milwaukee synagogues: Congregation Beth Israel Ner Tamid, Congregation Emanu-El B’ne Jeshurun, Congregation Shalom, Congregation Sinai, and Temple Menorah. Programs rotate monthly between the JCC and the synagogues.

Half an hour before lunch and entertainment, KOACH Kares brings community resources and experts to provide information and resources to help participants improve their quality of life.

One Thursday a month
KOACH Kares 11:30 AM – 12:00 PM
Lunch & KOACH Program 12:00 – 2:30 PM
