Hundreds of Jewish elders live in 26 assisted living facilities and nursing homes throughout Metrowest. Kesher helps them maintain their connection to the Jewish community. Every Friday, a Cantor leadsShabbat services in area nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Volunteer with the Cantor and through JFS’ Kesher program! You can give someone the opportunity to:
Light Shabbat candles
Attend a Jewish service, possibly their first in years
Say Kaddish for a loved one
Sing favorite melodies
Meet other Jews
Each volunteer makes a difference.
Families with children are encouraged to participate. Kesher is committed to the belief that no Jewish elder living in a residential facility should feel alone.
Kesher is made possible through the generosity of our donors and partnerships with local synagogues and facilities.
Explore. Connect. Volunteer.
