HaZak, our Solomon Schechter Award-winning program, is dedicated to serving the social, educational, and religious needs of our members aged 55 and over. The word HaZaK, which means "strength" in Hebrew, also stands for Hokhma (Wisdom), Ziknah (Maturity) and Kadimah (Looking Forward). Elaine Hordes is Hazak Chair.

HaZak programs are scheduled once a month on Wednesdays from 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. They include a variety of entertaining speakers and musical performances, as well as a delicious and healthy lunch. Watch for details on the Home Page and the monthly Bulletin about our award-winning programming!

There is no charge for either the lunch or program, but donations are appreciated. Please RSVP to the NHS office at (513) 931-6038 or email
