Woodside Park


The Woodside Park branch of Jewish Association of Cultural Societies (JACS), for the "young at heart", meets every Wednesday afternoon in the shul hall. Doors open 12.45.

If you are 60ish  more or less, retired or semi-retired, active and ready to extend your circle of friends, interested in broadening your horizons and obtaining some mental stimulation, as well as enjoying a wide range of social interests, then JACS is for you.

We have a range of guest speakers, entertainers, outside visits and individual events connected to the Chagim (festivals).

After the presentation / entertainment we serve tea or coffee and cakes.

Branch Chairman: Mrs. Gloria Holman.
