Schechter Holocaust Services (SHS) continues to honor the agency's longstanding commitment to address the needs and concerns of Holocaust survivors and their families as they change over time.

Café Hakalah is a monthly social and cultural gathering of Holocaust survivors. The goal of Café Hakalah is to offer Holocaust survivors:

  • A reason to leave their home
  • An opportunity to talk and make connections with other survivors
  • Intellectual and cultural enrichment

Café Hakalah Volunteers attend the café and assist staff with registration, greeting guests, and serving food. Russian speaking volunteers may also be asked to help with translation.

The café lasts for about two hours and is generally held on the last Wednesday of every month.

Volunteers may sign up to help at one or more Café Hakalah events.

Volunteer Requirements

  • Experience with elderly people
  • Russian language skills a plus
  • Have Wednesday daytime availability
  • Be able to travel to Brookline
  • Provide a minimum of two references
  • Undergo a CORI check
