As more people get the COVID-19 vaccine and restrictions are lifted, the Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center’s Senior Kosher Lunch Program for seniors age 60+ is taking a big step toward resuming in-person dining. Starting Friday, July 2 indoor dining on Fridays at noon will begin for fully vaccinated seniors. Takeout service will also be available on Fridays for seniors who are not vaccinated or uncomfortable dining indoors in a group setting.

Everyone dining in-person on Fridays must show their COVID vaccination card the first time they come. Wearing a mask is optional while dining in-person at the JCC. Just like before the pandemic, reservations are required for in-person Friday lunches by calling the JCC by noon at least one business day in advance. Curbside senior lunch pickup will continue Monday through Thursday with advance reservations still required for these days.

Starting Monday, July 5 the JCC’s Senior Kosher Lunch curbside pickup will move to the front of the building outside the main entrance near the flag pole. The 12-12:30 p.m. pickup time remains the same. This will be the new pickup location until further notice. Again, reservations are still required for lunch curbside pickup by calling the JCC by noon at least one business day in advance.

Whether dining in-person at the JCC on Fridays or doing curbside pickup Monday–Thursday, the suggested meal contribution is $4.25 for seniors age 60 and older. Cash or JCC Senior Meal Coupon only are accepted. See the Senior Kosher Lunch menu. Reservations are required by noon at least one business day before the meal date by calling 315-445-2360, ext. 100.

The JCC’s Senior Kosher Lunch Program is funded in part by Onondaga County Adult and Long Term Care Services, New York State Office for the Aging, and the Jewish Federation of Central New York. Additional funds are provided by the JCC.
