Finding Love at the JMiriam Selig and Adolph Scheiman found love at the J in their 80’s.

Houston, TX – Miriam Selig and Adolph Scheiman are both in their 80’s and joined the Evelyn Rubenstein JCC a few years ago to stay active and social. The two didn’t expect they would find love, but that’s what happened one day in the Senior Adult exercise class.

“I saw Miriam on the other side of the room. It took me a couple of weeks to get up the courage to say hello. I finally did and asked her out,” said 88-year-old Adolph. “We have so much in common; there is no tension and no conflict. Love at our age is terrific--- never better.”

It’s exactly that kind of story that is the focus of an award-winning documentary The Age of Love premiering at the J Thursday, August 18 at 7:00 p.m. in the Kaplan Theatre. The film follows the comical and poignant adventures of thirty seniors from Rochester, New York who sign up for a speed dating event for 70 to 90 year-olds. Fearlessly candid about their needs and desires, these WWII babies soon discover how the search love never changes.
