Partner Outside Organization: Chaverim, a project of Jewish Family Service

Chair: Rabbi Paul Kipnes Co-chair: Steve Keleman

Website: www.jfsla.org/chav and www.chaverimjfsla.org

When: ongoing

Completion Date of Last Project: ongoing

Description: Adults with developmental disabilities (ages 18 to 88) enjoy the JFS Chaverim social friendship program that keeps them connected to the Jewish community.  We offer fun-filled and structured secular activities, such as bowling, field trips and exercise programs, as well as Jewish activities like Shabbat dinners, Passover Seders and B’nai Mitzvah preparation. Volunteers design and deliver programs, accompany participants on day trips and other activities, and welcome Chaverim members to Shabbat services

Family Friendly: Ages 18-adult

Is It B’nai Mitzvah Project Worthy?: Mitzvah Projects require a minimum 10-hour “hands on” commitment to a single project. Interested students contact Program Coordinator Gerry Dicker to determine whether there is a need within the student’s project timeframe for coordination of a specific activity. As always, advanced planning and Mitzvah Project Coordinator approval are required.
