Adult Classes

Join us for a free screening in our JCC’s Garfield Theatre of a humorous and heartwarming documentary about the growing generation gap. Focusing on a group of seniors who take their first steps into cyber-space under the tutelage of teenage mentors, the film renders a thought-provoking look at a spirited group enriched by digitally re-connecting with their families and each other. Bring your grandchildren and families to this intergenerational event.
