Jewish Family & Career Services

Shabbos Friends is back again!


Earlier this month, Jewish Family & Career Services welcomed back volunteers of the JFCS Doris L. & Theodore B. Meyers Shabbos Friends Program.

The volunteers each visited Louisville-area senior living facilities, celebrating Shabbat with the residents. At one residence, 15 participants joined to recite the blessings, exchange well wishes and reflect on their weeks together. The joy of gathering after so much time apart was palpable, and JFCS is grateful for the longtime volunteers diving in and helping build Jewish community for Louisville seniors.

The JFCS Shabbos Friends Program was established to provide the Jewish Sabbath to Jewish seniors living in local assisted-living facilities and nursing homes each month.

If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering with JFCS, email us at volunteer@jfcslouisville.org today!
