Travel & Day Trips

Travel out & about with the OFJCC! Take a variety of trips to fun places in the Bay Area and beyond.

We offer season subscriptions to the symphony, senior excursions to museums and shows, annual overnight trips to the Shakespeare Festival in Ashland and to the Carmel Bach Festival. Contact Michelle Rosengaus at mrosengaus@paloaltojcc.org to sign up for the email list.

Love the symphony but have no one to go with? Tired of driving, parking and making all of the arrangements? Take advantage of group rates that include comfortable round-trip transportation and timely reminders before the performance date.

These trips are very popular, so please register early by calling the Customer Service Desk at (650) 223-8700. Senior excursions are funded in part by the Senior Mobility Initiative at the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund.
