Please join us to celebrate the recipients of our inaugural 16 over 61 awards.

Jewish tradition is filled with stories of individuals who take transformative journeys late in their lives. Moses, Abraham, Sarah, Miriam, and Naomi are just a few who make invaluable contributions at mature ages. Instead of diminishing, their relevance to their communities intensifies as they age.

The 16 Over 61 Awards are a unique partnership between the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan’s Wechsler Center for Modern Aging and the Forward, in which we spotlighted the creativity, leadership, and initiative of older adults who exemplify our collective values.

Please register in advance and the program link will be sent to you.
