New ‘Community Tuesdays’ Give the Public a Taste of OFJCC Programming
The Oshman Family JCC (OFJCC) introduces an innovative community program which opens an array of free and low cost programs to any adult on Tuesdays between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM.
To kick-off this program, the OFJCC is hosting a concert luncheon featuring the San Francisco Opera Merola Singers on January 15, 2013. The Merola Opera Program is regarded as the foremost opera training program for aspiring opera singers, coach accompanists and stage directors. Attendees will hear arias, songs and Broadway tunes sung by the young opera singers of the future. Advance reservations are required for this event because lunch will be served. The cost is one punch on a Community Tuesdays card or $15 paid at the door.
The Merola concert is just a sample of the many activities available to Community Tuesday participants to enjoy while at the OFJCC. Anyone can purchase a 10-activity punch card for $110 ($90 for members) or a 5-activity punch card for $75 ($55 for members) and enjoy lectures, classes, concerts, access to the Goldman Sports and Wellness Complex, and additional discounts. The punch cards are being sold at half price until January 14. Daytime programming provides the opportunity to try new things and the goal is to attract retirees, seniors, part-time workers and stay at home parents.
Program creator, Michelle Rosengaus states, “Community Tuesdays will be activity-packed with a variety of quality programs provided at a low cost. Area residents have expressed a need for this type of programming and we’re happy we can deliver. We want them to spend the day at the J.”
Another important element of Community Tuesdays is the opportunity for people to volunteer. Volunteer options include: reading and teaching crafts to kids ages 5 to 12, playing chess with children in afterschool care and sharing hobbies and crafts with adult members. All volunteer options require advance arrangements.
Bring a friend and make your Tuesday special by enjoying programs at the OFJCC.
