BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) — When the coronavirus shut down the Levis Jewish Community Center in Boca Raton, Florida, 98-year-old Trudy Berlin sprang into action to keep her weekly women’s group active.
“The Ladies Room,” which she’s hosted at the JCC since 2000, went virtual.
Thanks to a little help from the center’s arts, culture, and learning director, Berlin began hosting the weekly show from her apartment.
She’s grown a steady audience of about 50 women from the U.S. and Canada who have come to view the class as a support group.
Berlin says it’s “a whole new world out there” and she’s having fun.
