Leisure League
Federation offers two senior programs called Leisure League each month in Sacramento. Dates are listed below. Leisure League offers entertainment/discussions and lunch for $5/person. Check out other events and programs happening in our community!

Shabbat Shalom Sacramento

SHABBAT SHALOM SACRAMENTO
Federation volunteers visit two secular senior facilities each month to make Shabbat with Jewish residents. We supply all of the fixins'--challah, grape juice, candles, and more--and volunteers lead residents in the blessings, song, and conversation. For future dates, contact Willie Recht at 916-486-0906 or wrecht@jewishsac.org.

TRANSPORTATION FOR SENIORS
The Jewish Federation has been awarded limited grant funding from the Jewish Community Foundation of the West to provide Taxi, ParaTransit, or Regional Transit vouchers to Jewish seniors who are homebound or no longer able to drive. NOTE: In order to book rides with Paratransit, you need to complete a form for a Paratransit ID card. For more information, contact our Community Social Worker, Rebecca Ray, at 916-205-0688.

UPCOMING EVENTS
March 8, 2017. Leisure League at Temple Or Rishon. Celebrated Sacramento movie reviewer and radio personality Matias Bombal and master pianist Jim Jordan return to regale the Leisure League with songs from the 1930s-40s. This duo always delivers a memorable musical afternoon showcasing the beloved American songs and songwriters of a bygone era. 7755 Hazel Ave., Orangevale.

March 23, 2017. Leisure League at the Albert Einstein Residence Center. “Oldies but goodies” certainly describes this group of vocalists and musicians, as well as the songs they have been performing for audiences all over the greater Sacramento region since 1972. “You’ve got to get them back again—fast!” is a statement often expressed after another spectacular performance by this all-volunteer, “sing-along” chorus and band. 1935 Wright St., Sacramento.

Leisure League programs are Noon-2:00pm. $5 includes lunch and entertainment. Leisure League is funded by The Trust Fund for the Jewish Elderly and The Jewish Federation of the Sacramento Region. RSVPs required for food planning. For more information or to RSVP, contact 916-486-0906 ext. 310 or federation@jewishsac.org.
