The Clubhouse was founded in 2018 in direct response to the rapid growth of the Milwaukee North Shores aging Jewish population, the epidemic of loneliness among
independent older adults and specifically the lack of affordable structured social engagement opportunities. The Clubhouse is a way for seniors to get together
for lunch and to share stimulating and entertaining programming approximately twice a month. A wellstaffed group of volunteers contribute to the incredible
success of this program. Transportation can be arranged. Gatherings are held at Congregation Shalom at noon.
Reservations are required. “Be A Member Of This Exclusive Club, Where Friendship Pays Your Dues.”
