JFS of Greater New Haven has been very busy planning meaningful events for the Shalom Group, a social group for Jewish adults with developmental disabilities. For the past 30 years, the agency has been offering social events and educational activities to create a welcoming and inclusive community.
In February, the group gathered for a night of bowling at Amity Bowl. Attendees bowled several games and enjoyed socializing with friends while practicing their bowling skills. Some of the other recent events include a Purim activity, where everyone gathered to make groggers. At the Tu Bishvat Seder, JFS’ Sydney Perry, taught about the meaning of the holiday. Shalom Group Coordinator Rachel Scolnic Dobin, LMSW, says “We have several fun activities planned for this summer, including Shabbat dinners and outdoor picnics.”
If you know someone who might enjoy and benefit from the Shalom Group, please contact Rachel at (203) 389-5599 ext. 109 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
