Join Senior Connections for programs held  on the second and fourth Mondays of each month throughout the year. All programs are curated by seniors and are open to members as well as the wider Santa Cruz community. All programs are free.

Since 2006, Senior Connections has been providing an eclectic mix of lectures, discussions, films, musical and dramatic performances, arts and health panels, rabbinic roundtables and annual luncheons. Visit with friends, make new friends and learn something new.

Call ahead if transportation arrangements are needed (see contact information below).

Programs are subject to change.
