Boulder JFS Clients Need You

Jewish Family ServiceAs you may know, Boulder Jewish Family Service (JFS) is always seeking Friendly Visitor volunteers to make a commitment to visit a senior weekly or every other week for about an hour. Did you know that we not only serve clients in Boulder, but also in Louisville and Lafayette? Please let us know if you live in this area and would like to bring joy to an older adult’s life by providing companionship and helping with errands.

We also currently have clients with the following needs:

  • A woman who wants someone to play piano with her
  • A senior seeking a Scrabble partner
  • A gentleman who needs help with computer projects

If you can help fill any of these needs, please contact Ingrid Swords, Boulder JFS volunteer resource coordinator, at 303.415.1025 or iswords@jewishfamilyservice.org. We have seen these experiences bring so much joy and vitality to the seniors involved and to the volunteers as well. It’s always a win-win situation!

Teshuva is the Jewish way to pay our ‘sin taxes.’ Aveira is one of the Hebrew words for transgression. In my mind, it resonates with the English word, ‘over.’
