a Jewish presence in the City of St. Louis

a place for everyone


Whether you call them “sages” or “elders,” older adults are an active and integral part of CRC’s community. CRC offers many great opportunities for involvement to those who are looking to build new relationships or simply give back to the community after retirement:

Triple Chai+ Brunch
Triple Chai Plus is a social group that engages those ages 55+ by building relationships, making connections and providing opportunities to learn and serve. We hold monthly Sunday brunch meetings with diverse speakers presenting topics of interest. We also have held dinners and evenings at the theatre. The group is open to ideas from all members for future events and/or programs.

Triple Chai Brunch Potluck & Lecture
Sunday, January 7, 10:30-12:30 in the CRC Multipurpose Room

What do you know about Jewish Family and Children’s Services?  Lou Albert, Chief Executive Officer, and Rabbi Neal Rose, Chaplain will explain some of the services provided: Counseling and Testing, School based Programs, Child abuse Programs, Food Pantry, and Chaplaincy Program.  Hear how you can help others, and find another way to add meaning to your life.

To let us know you plan to attend contact Claire Hyman or Anita Wilson or call 314-878-3502.
Please bring one dish to share:  A-L: an entrée, M-Z: a side dish.


Shabbat, holidays, and religious events offer great opportunities to celebrate our annual milestones in community. Many programs are followed by an Oneg, a chance to meet and visit with other members over a nosh.

Adult Education programs are offered one weekdays, evenings, and weekends to fit different schedules. “Looking Back,” an eclectic class exploring all aspects of Jewish history, meets Fridays at noon, and Torah study meets Fridays at 2pm and Saturdays at 8:45 am. Other classes, including Adult Hebrew and our popular “University Series,” meet on weeknights throughout the year. And of course, our fabulous retreats – Congregational, Men’s, Women’s, and Couples – offer wonderful opportunities to learn and grow with other CRC members.

If you have questions about upcoming programs, or if there is a program you’d like to suggest or help plan, please contact Jen Fishering at jen@centralreform.org.
