Founded in 1946, Council Lifetime Learning (CLL) is the first and longest established cultural center for older adults in New York City.  Many of our programs are designed and facilitated by CLL members and volunteers. CLL is the place to be for active New Yorkers who value life-long learning and broadening their social networks. CLL attracts the best and brightest teachers and provides a wide range of arts, humanities, cultural, educational and recreational programming. Research has proven that arts and culture offer a natural, joyous means of learning, sharing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle through all stages of life. An average of 200 older adults come through our doors each week, and over the last year, approximately 500 active seniors have participated in a broad range of programs. See pictures from our CLL Classes here

CLL programming is only open to members of NCJW NY.
Membership costs $72 per year. Become a member here.
For those in financial need, scholarships are available.
No classes will be held on Monday, January 15th and Monday, February, 19th.
