Gems at the J

Your hub for lifelong engagement

Gems, founded in 1995, began by operating a senior center in the Pavilion, providing services to low-income older adults. In 2008, Gems took over the older adult program at Kaiserman JCC, later moving it to Adath Israel. In 2014, they expanded to Federation Housing. Recently, Gems joined forces with the JCC, bringing new staff members and board members on board. This partnership strengthens both organizations, enhancing our programs and community impact. We thank Golden Slipper, the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, and our supporters for making this alliance possible, positioning us as a leading institution serving Jewish older adults in the region.

Program Sponsor: Weinberg Family Fund of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia
