VBS Hazak (for 60+)

hazak-btn3.pngOver 21 years ago, Rabbi Harold Schulweis (z”l) challenged a group of senior VBS members to design a program for seniors that would establish a setting at VBS for learning, socializing, and fellowship.

That pioneering group of volunteers developed the basic structure for the program that continues and grows today.
