What is W.I.S.E. at the J?
WISE at the J is a congregate meal program that takes place at the JCC and is organized by Jewish Family Services of Washtenaw County. Currently, the program takes place on Wednesdays and Fridays. Starting in the New Year, we will be running WISE at the J on Tuesdays as well. During the program, we serve a delicious and nutritious lunch. Lunch is served at 12pm and typically includes a main course, soup, salad, fruit and a desert. After lunch, there is always a fun program. On Wednesdays, the group watches a movie together. On Fridays, the group plays Mahjong. We have a variety of other games available as well. For this program we ask for a suggested donation of $3 for anyone older than 60. There is a fee of $5.50 for anyone under 60 years old.
