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.  

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!

This program has been made possible by a grant from the Jewish Federation of Ventura County
