A memory café is a model of social programming that provides an inviting place for people with forgetfulness or other changes in their thinking — and their family and friends!

At Temple Emanuel, our monthly Memory Café is inspired by Jewish themes of the season while also being welcoming to all. Each month, we start with conversation starters and refreshments, followed by an interactive program.

There is no cost to attend — but registration is required! This series is open to Temple Emanuel members as well as the greater community.

Meets Monthly, 1 – 2:30 pm
Feb 7,  Mar 14, Apr 11, May 9 and Jun 6

A care partner must accompany guests who require personal care assistance. Call Tracy Schneider at 617-959-4928 to register.

This program series is proudly co-presented by Temple Emanuel and Newbridge on the Charles, in partnership with Newton Senior Center
