About VBS Hazak

The HAZAK Community at Valley Beth Shalom is a vibrant Jewish community of VBS and non-VBS seniors committed to:

  • Lifelong learning
  • Building relationships and connections
  • Contribution, service, sharing, caring
  • Active, positive aging

Over 20 years ago, Rabbi Harold Shulweis (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.

The Hazak community achieves our goals through a variety of programs and activities, e.g., Hazak Monday enrichment programs, Hazak Shabbat Dinners with programs, Field Trips, Movies, Hazak Wednesday Lunch and Learns, and service activities.
