Shabbat Shalom Sacramento

SHABBAT SHALOM SACRAMENTO
Federation volunteers visit two secular senior facilities each month to make Shabbat with Jewish residents. We supply all of the fixins'--challah, grape juice, candles, and more--and volunteers lead residents in the blessings, song, and conversation. For future dates, contact Rikki Kass at 916-486-0906 or rkass@jewishsac.org.

TRANSPORTATION FOR SENIORS
The Jewish Federation has been awarded limited grant funding from the Jewish Community Foundation of the West to provide Taxi, ParaTransit, or Regional Transit vouchers to Jewish seniors who are homebound or no longer able to drive. NOTE: In order to book rides with Paratransit, you need to complete a form for a Paratransit ID card. For more information, contact our Community Social Worker, Rebecca Ray, at 916-205-0688.
