Weinberg Center


(Formerly known as the Whittaker Center)

“The Center has given me my life back.”

– Philip Rubinstein, Weinberg Center member


As perceptions of aging continue to evolve and barriers to exciting new beginnings increasingly erode, older adults are re-defining the very definition of health. The Weinberg Center for Balanced Living at the Manny Cantor Center provides empowering classes, workshops, and social events focused on maintaining personal health, engaging the senses, and motivating its members.

In addition to social services and support, Center members get a jam-packed calendar of events, cultural celebrations, deeply discounted tickets to popular shows, and innovative health & wellness programs. 

On Mondays – Fridays, the Center also serves hot, healthy kosher breakfast and lunch for a suggested donation of $1 for breakfast and $1.50 for lunch. All are welcome. 


Activities and classes are designed to be engaging and enjoyable — while meeting a variety of interests, fitness and health levels. If you or your loved one is interested in learning more about the Weinberg Center, please get in touch.
