Everyone Welcome!

Searching for a Jewish connection, a place to meet new friends, to enrich your life with an exciting variety of activities and day trips but don’t live close to the JCCNV? Check out the Adult Outreach programs on our calendar to find one near you. These programs and activities are planned for Adults 55+, though people of all ages are welcome to attend. Programs and activities are subject to change, so confirm beforehand.

JCCNV Adult 55+ programming is made possible thanks in part to the “Coming of Age” grant from The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington. The program is a collaborative effort of the JCCNV, Jewish Council for the Aging (JCA), Jewish Social Service Agency (JSSA) and jConnect.

Finding Maria – A Book and Author Talk with Peter Szabo 

Wednesday, June 6, 10:30am–noon

Peter Szabo was a young man navigating career and relationship uncertainties, but a grudging afternoon visit in New York City with his grandmother opens windows to an untold family past and begins a profound friendship with the extraordinary woman who will change his life. 

Szabo will read from Finding Maria, a memoir that tells the story of his relationship with his grandmother in the 1990s, her early life in Hungary before and during the Holocaust, and her escape from Hungary to the United States. Finding Maria tells a story of love and discovery, of tragedy and growth. According to The Jerusalem Post’s Aaron Leibel,  “Szabo discovers much about his relatives and their lives in this beautiful book – and, even better, so do his readers…This well written memoir provides a glimpse of a Jewish family’s life during and after World War II in Budapest and later as Americans. It is insightful in all its settings.”

Ford’s Theatre: The Newly Discovered History of America’s Most Famous Playhouse: 

Wednesday, June 13, 10:30am-noon

Presented by Diane T. Putney, retired Department of Defense historian

The night John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln, distraught, outraged citizens wanted to torch Ford’s Theatre, the site of the assassination. The federal government protected the structure, but later destroyed the “theater” part of it. The Army Surgeon General moved his remarkable museum and library into the renovated building making it an intellectual hub of the city. Death struck again in 1893 when the interior building collapsed, killing 20 clerks at the site, leading to calls to raze the cursed edifice. In the 1920s, when Lt. Col. U.S. Grant III advocated restoring the building to its Civil War appearance, members of Congress refused to fund a “monument to a murderer!” Diane will present a fascinating, illustrated story of Ford’s Theater after the assassination and explain the clashing ideas surrounding decisions to reconstruct the theater in the 1960s.
