Senior Connections

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.

***Advance, paid reservations are required for the Luncheon and must be made by May 2nd. Make your online reservation here. Or send in or drop off your payment of $10 to the Temple Beth El office: 3055 Porter Gulch Rd. Aptos, 95003.

Why not honor your loved ones with a donation to the Senior Connections fund and help us to continue these great programs twice a month? Senior Connections is a self-sustaining group within the Temple family. Our success is due to the support of people like you. Contributions of any amount to Senior Connections are greatly appreciated and will go toward honorariums for our speakers, film licensing dues, luncheon expenses and assistance to seniors in our Temple and in the larger community.
