It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.

Where

This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.

About

If you enjoy leading "Welcome the Shabbat" services and interacting with Older Adults please consider volunteering to lead one-hour classes via videochat for homebound Seniors on Friday afternoons. Selfhelp's "Virtual Senior Center" allows homebound Seniors to attend online classes on a wide range of topics from their senior-friendly home computer. Volunteer Facilitators lead the classes from their own computer (with high-speed internet and webcam) via a videochat program (we will train you)that you download so everyone can see, hear and speak to each other. The service you lead should include music/singing, English prayer(so it's understandable) and explanation but you have control over hwo to create the service to enhance the Sabbath for people who can't travel to a Synagogue.
