Social Programs

We offer Hevra and Tikva programs as a collaboration between JFGH and the Bender JCC of Greater Washington to make new friends and enrich your Jewish identity.

 

Hevra

For Ages 18+. This social group is for those who may have learning, intellectual and other developmental disabilities. Participants meet for fun and exciting excursions, such as lunch outings, a sporting event at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. or a musical performance.

Hevra members have input into the planning of their schedule. A skilled group leader provides a comfortable atmosphere for the participants to work on socialization and other skills.

The group meets twice a month on Sundays with the option of a Saturday night activity.

If you have any questions or are interested in joining the Hevra group, please contact Marcy Bennett at 240.283.6031 or MBennett@jfgh.org.

Tikvah

For Ages 18+.  This social group is for Jewish young adults who may have learning, intellectual and other developmental disabilities and are capable of functioning independently. The group provides a comfortable and informal setting in which members participate in a variety of activities at the Jewish Community Center or in the community with a staff group leader.

The group meets twice a month on Sundays with the option of a Saturday night activity.

If you have any questions or are interested in joining the Tikvah group, please contact Marcy Bennett at 240.283.6031 or MBennett@jfgh.org.
