Keeping the health and well-being of our entire community in mind, we are suspending on-site operations until further notice.
Our staff will hold regular weekday hours, working remotely, from 9:00am-5:00pm.

Senior Adults

The mission of SPICE is to enhance the quality of life of affiliated and non-affiliated Jewish seniors by providing religious, cultural, educational, or social programs of interest and concern.

Put some SPICE in your life!

We Learn Together

  • Join us on the first and third Wednesday of the month for SPICE-In, a lunch and learn format including morning presentations by clergy and paralleling afternoon presentations by Charlotte area professionals. There’s always plenty of time for socializing.

We Have Fun Together

  • Visit great venues with SPICE Outs, which take SPICE offsite to museums, theaters, and other locations providing an atmosphere for exceptional learning experiences and fabulously fun times. (Registrations required.

We Care for Each Other

  • Provide companionship with SPICE’s Seniors Visiting Seniors program which trains and supplies volunteers who offer companionship to shut-ins. Providing some much-needed conversation, a friendly face, encouraging words, and quiet listening are incredible mitzvot offered by our volunteers. (Contact Carol Sandler.)

We Act Together

  • Perform Tikkun Olam/Repairing the World
  • SPICE is a community partner with Sterling Elementary School. Raising funds, providing enhancements to students’ experiences, rewards for achieving goals, and working one-on-one with students to elevate learning experiences are the hallmarks of SPICE’s relationship with Sterling Elementary. (Contact Michael Norman.)
  • SPICE participates annually in May at TBE’s Mitzvah Day. Preparing educational kits that are used throughout the Charlotte Mecklenburg School system is another way SPICE lends a hand to the community. (Contact Liz Cicirello)

We Pray Together

  • Three times a year we come together at a Shabbat evening service followed by a Pot Luck Dinner. Nothing says community like a jointly made and shared meal.
