Welcome to the online home of The Wechsler Center for Modern Aging

Read the letter
from Rabbi Joy Levitt that went out on Sep 10, 2020 regarding the launch of this exciting new center.

The Wechsler Center for Modern Aging seeks to reimagine older adulthood in a Jewish communal setting as a time of expansive possibility, purpose, community engagement, mutual support, and blessing. We envision an engaged and connected cohort of older adults who find deep meaning in community, who are treasured by the broader Jewish community for their wisdom, and who will develop the tools and attitudes to successfully transition through life as they age.  Elements in the Wechsler Center include a focus on research and best practices in the field, a deepening and expansion of volunteer leadership engagement, broadening of the JCC's Caring Initiative aimed at supporting our older adults as they age in place, and a permanent virtual center encompassing programming, fostering social connections, and poised to embark on new innovations.

Help us continue to ensure accessible programming for everyone. Please support 60+ programming at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan.
