Active Seniors

We Have a New Home!

As of September 6, 2022, the JCC of Northern New Jersey’s Active Seniors program has a new home at Temple Avodat Shalom centrally located at 385 Howland Avenue, River Edge, on the border of Paramus, just across the street from Van Saun Park. 

This new facility has many benefits for the population it will serve: the building is A.D.A. compliant with no stairs or barriers to entry; it has convenient “drive-up-style” parking; there will be use of additional program rooms offering quiet space when needed; and the same friendly staff will be on hand to support our most valued members of the JCC community.


Our Active Seniors are a vibrant, vital part of the JCCNNJ. The core of all scheduled events centers around creating opportunities for connection — with staff, volunteers, and especially each other. Through the consistency and variety of activities offered each Tuesday and Thursday our program continues to grow in camaraderie, spirit and participation.

This program is supported by Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey and the Bergen County Division of Senior Services.

NOTE: ALL programming takes place in-person ONLY.
