Join us for great food, friends, fun and interesting programs at Lechayim Lunchtime Plus. Meeting at Beth Israel Center, 1406 Mound Street, located on the corner of Mound Street and Randall Avenue, every Monday from 11am to 1:30pm. Lechayim runs from September through May, and includes a kosher lunch catered by UW Hillel Adamah, yoga from a chair, and interesting programming that changes each and every week!

If you would like a meal, contact Jewish Social Services at (608) 442-4083 or email: by Wednesday preceding the meal.  If you are 60 years or older, a minimum donation of $4.50 is suggested, but please only pay what is comfortable for you. The cost of the meal is $17.20 for those younger than 60 years old.

Masks are optional at our host site, Beth Israel Center. Some individuals will wear masks indoors, especially when in proximity to people they do not live with or know well. As members of a supportive, loving community, we respect that each of us will take precautions we deem necessary and encourage all to be sensitive to the needs of others.

We will have masks available at Lechayim check-in table. We continue to monitor the situation, and will post any changes to policy of our agency or our host. To see Beth Israel Center current practices, visit their webpage:
