A Tribute to Jerry

View the Tribute to Jerry Zoom Meeting

SMC Emeritus will host "A Tribute to Jerry," a live Zoom Virtual Event honoring longtime Emeritus student Jerry Rosenblum.

Rosenblum, an award-winning amateur singer, has been attending Emeritus classes in singing, current events, and films for the past 20 years, until the pandemic interrupted the flow.

The tribute will be framed by a conversation between Rosenblum and Interim Dean of Noncredit and External Programs Dr. Scott Silverman, and there will be time for guests to express their warm wishes to Rosenblum before the event ends. Rosenblum will also read a few short chapters from his book, and close out the event singing his version of “My Way."

SMC’s widely praised Emeritus program, founded by Santa Monica College in 1975 to serve the lifelong learning interests of older adults, offers more than 120 noncredit adult education classes and special programs that serve more than 3,000 students each year.

More information is available by sending an email to Scott Silverman, or calling 310-434-4306.
