JFS Luncheons

SAJFS hosts monthly luncheons for members of our community to socialize and learn together. The food is always delicious, and our programs include history, arts, and culture lectures, as well as light entertainment. Unless otherwise advertised, the luncheons are held the second Thursday of each month at Temple Beth Shalom from noon to 1:30 p.m.

We are happy to arrange transportation for you if necessary.
