Description

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. Help is also needed to drive survivors to and from the event.

The café lasts for about two hours and is generally held monthly, with future dates (beyond December 6th) to be determined.

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

  • Experience with elderly people
