Sundays at JASA (Jewish Association for Services for the Aged) has been offering college-level continuing education classes for adults age 50+ for the last 30 years. Headquartered at 247 West 37th Street, Sundays at JASA went virtual as soon as COVID-19 hit. But the student community continued to come together every week to learn, laugh, and connect – despite the physical distance between them.
Some students have grown to really prefer the convenience of virtual learning!
The upcoming fall semester comes with unlimited courses and lectures. Students will have access to 15 unique weekly college-level courses including The Presidents & Their Elections, Great Living Songwriters, New York Short Stories, The Magic of Movie Making, Drawing Workshop, Opera Companion and Crossword Construction.
