About This Opportunity

UJA-Federation of New York's Engage Jewish Service Corps empowers Jews in their 50s, 60s, and beyond to address the needs of the Jewish community of New York City.

Volunteers use their lifelong skill sets, expertise, passion, and leadership to address issues that they care deeply about, including poverty, hunger, joblessness, and the needs of isolated elderly and people with special needs. Volunteers choose opportunities that fit their interests and availability or create opportunities of their own.

Participants also join together in regular community-building gatherings that include discussion, reflection, and analysis, which provide opportunities to learn about related societal issues and teachings and facilitate connections between the volunteering, learning, and overall life experiences.

At this information session, participants will learn more about upcoming and ongoing Engage opportunities, including one-time projects, ongoing assignments and community-building events.  There will be staff and volunteer leaders who will answer questions and help participants sign up for opportunities that fit their interests and availabilities.  Light refreshments will be served.

For more information, please contact Rabbi Brian Fink, Director of Engage, at 646.505.4408 or bfink@jccmanhattan.org.
