Fencing Classes at the J for Adults

The Fencing Academy of Philadelphia was founded by Mark and Lara Masters in 1989. Since its founding, the Academy has been dedicated to sharing the sport of fencing with the Philadelphia community and its surrounding suburbs. We are so excited to be the Main Line location for the Fencing Academy of Philadelphia.

Fencing is a unique sport in that it requires significant development of physical, tactical, and strategic skill sets. To teach these skills, the Fencing Academy of Philadelphia offers fun and engaging classes for athletes of all ages and skill levels, from 8-80 and beginner to elite! Classes are taught using a systematic teaching method that allows our students to see consistent and exponential progress.

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
