Celebrating The Glory Days YMHA/Rady JCC: Nostalgia Weekend November 15-17, 2019

August 26, 2019

Feeling nostalgic about the good old days?  Although many former YMHA members are dispersed from around some of our old neighbourhoods, a group of past YMHA & Rady JCC members are organizing a Nostalgia Weekend to celebrate and remember the glory days.

Rady JCC Board Members and YMHA enthusiasts Murray Gilfix and Tannis Mindell are the Co-Chairs of the 100th Anniversary Committee. “Murray Gilfix and I are honoured to be the co-chairs for this amazing milestone in the history of the Jewish Community of Manitoba”, commented co-chair Tannis Mindell. There are so many of us who remember with great fondness participating in the myriad of activities offered by the YMHA and now the Rady JCC. Over the 100 years, members both young and old have had a place to gather and establish lifelong friendships.

From November 15-17, the Rady JCC will be hosting a Nostalgia Weekend with many activities and events scheduled.

Shabbat Dinner: Friday, November 15, 6:00 p.m.

Everyone is invited as we welcome in Shabbat/Sabbath with old and new friends and loved ones in a warm and comfortable setting of the JCC. Enjoy a delicious Shabbat dinner followed by musical entertainment and singing. Plus time for sharing memories and reconnecting with old friends.
