Ruth Beckman

Coordinator of Active Adult Programs

Ruth’s smile greets everyone twice a week. With her dedication and attention to the personal touch, Ruth helps to make the JCC Senior Lunch program a welcoming and safe place for all.

Ruth has a special way with the Seniors at the JCC. With a compassionate ear, a warm touch on the arm, or remembering who doesn’t like fish or tomatoes, Ruth runs the Active Senior program with heart and soul.

As the Coordinator of Senior Programming, Ruth follows the Mind, Body, Spirit ideals of the JCC. Ruth brings engaging activities every Tuesday and Thursday to our Active Seniors: challenging discussions about current events, health and wellness programs like yoga, meditation, and fitness, plus space to explore individual interests. Speakers, including authors and professors, and visiting artists all answer Ruth’s call to bring mindful and mind expanding experiences to the JCC Seniors.

Ruth also puts a special touch on holidays. She runs the annual Hamantashen and Challah Make- Take- and Bake events, (supplying the dough so everyone can enjoy the experience), as well as the much-anticipated annual Hanukkah program, Senior Seder, and Kabbalat Shabbatot throughout the year.

Ruth’s smile greets everyone, new and familiar. With her dedication and attention to the personal touch, Ruth helps to create a very special part of our community offerings.
