STILL TRAVELING

Presented by the OMJCC / National JCC Adult & Senior Alliance.  

Would you like to still travel? Now you can without leaving your home – just stay still!  Let us whisk you away for an "armchair adventure" on an interesting, educational, fun & live, guided group tour in a destination beyond your front door ..even beyond the grocery store!  Forget the long, masked airplane ride, we take you across the time zones by Zoom where a local professional guide from a distant destination will take us to explore sites or topics. Live Q&A, photos, graphics & video clips (when available) will transport us to the destination!
