Prime Timers

80 is the new 40, and 70 is the new 30! Today’s Prime Timers have wide-ranging interests and are intellectually curious. Our Prime Timers can look forward to a year full of programs and day trips designed to help us engage and connect.

Every month brings an opportunity for Prime Timers to meet at Temple for lunch and a lecture, performance, or film. Connections are enhanced with day trips to local and regional sites of Judaic, historical, and cultural interest. All trips include travel via deluxe motor coach and are subsidized by the Stephanie Morris Prime Timers Programming Fund and the Pauline C. Gusdorf Prime Timers Fund. Look for information and details in the WHC Journal; the Shabbat service brochure, This Week; and in special mailings.

Services & Resources


How do I find local transportation if I can't drive? What home care services exist in our region? How do I get in touch with local Jewish agencies? Answers to these questions and more can be found in the Prime Timers' new "Services & Resources: A Guide for WHC Seniors, Families, and Caregivers."

Covering everything from emergency numbers to neighborhoods that help residents age in place, "Services & Resources" is a free, comprehensive guide to the resources available to you and your family – regardless of your age. Compiled by Prime Timers members who wanted to quickly and easily find local services, "Services & Resources" is available in hard copy at Temple and online by clicking here.
