Our Mission Statement


IMG_0234 (Small).jpg

The Smile on Seniors Program, established in 2009 under the directorship of Rabbi Yosef Muchnik, aims to bring exclusive programming geared to our large Senior Community. It provides monthly events that promote social interaction and features exciting activities for Seniors. Additionally, Smile on Seniors offers volunteers who visit with homebound or lonely Seniors at their homes, in assisted living facilities as well as at the hospital. Their mission is to bring joy and stimulation to the visitees. Our hope is to ultimately match up every Senior in need with a volunteer. 

Monthly Programs


The large crowd

Open to all of our seniors, Smile On Seniors offers a monthly gathering, usually held at Chabad of Camarillo, located just outside of Leisure Village behind the Bank of America. Events feature, food, entertainment, hands-on activities and exclusive raffles. In conjunction with major Jewish Holidays, Smile on Seniors offers Holiday themed programs.

Many Seniors living in our community, either at home, or at assisted living homes are lonely and homebound. Smile on Seniors matches friendly volunteers with these seniors, offering a weekly visit. These visits bring joy and cheer and can brighten the entire day, or even the whole week for these seniors. They look forward to spending quality time with some who cares about them. Visitors can bring small gifts, shmooze, play board games, or day anything else that the senior would appreciate them doing. Sometimes, the visitors feel like they gain more from the visit than the senior they are visiting.

If you would like to volunteer, or if you know a senior who could use a visit, please contact us: 805-383-7882 or e-mail:[email protected]  This is a special mitzvah and a great opportunity to make a huge difference in a seniors life!

Challah Delivery Program



Many have experienced the taste of homemade Challahs growing up at their mother or grandmothers table. Often, eating Challah can evoke warm memories of growing up, and of Shabbos. Smile on Seniors now offers the special opportunity of delivering homemade challahs on friday afternoon to our homebound or lonely seniors. This small gesture can make a huge difference to their lives and to their Shabbos.

If you would like to volunteer to deliver challahs, or know of a senior who could receive one, please contact us 805-383-7882 or e-mail: [email protected] 

Smile on Seniors is under the auspices of Chabad of Camarillo. We are a non-profit organization and rely on charitable contributions to cover our expenses. To make a tax deductable contribution to this or any other program of Chabad of Camarillo, please click here
