Serving our seniors

The Jewish Pavilion is asking adults to write letters and children to make drawings to send to seniors. Homemade face masks are needed for seniors in elder-care facilities.

Central Florida Hillel has launched Hillel Helps for students interested in performing mitzvahs in the Orlando community can do so. Hillel Helps is a way for students to reach out to those in need, especially elderly residents of Kinneret in need of human contact at this difficult time. Contact Jacqui Drazen McGrail for details.

 

College parent/student support

Hillel Parents Roundtable is a new group offering support to parents of college students. Virtual meetings will be held in the coming weeks. If you are a parent of a college student and you or your student is in need of support or services, contact Liz Kalef for details.
