NEW VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNTIY: JSS is launching its new refugee mentorship program, Aljirani Madison, and is now seeking volunteers! From the Swahili “jirani – neighbor” and Arabic “aljar – neighbor”, Aljirani Madison is a 6-month long volunteering program that partners community volunteers with a local refugee individual or family to provide a warm welcome, companionship, and practical help. For a full description of the program please see the attached document. For any further information, contact Sam Van Akkeren, sam@jssmadison.org. Please note: partnerships will meet digitally for the foreseeable future due to COVID-19.

JSS is taking COVID-19 prevention very seriously. Our office is open for scheduled appointments or visits only. In-person programming has been cancelled until further notice. Staff continue to work from home and are available during business hours to answer calls and emails. If you need a social worker’s help call JSS main number, 608-442-4081.

The Jewish Federation of Madison has a page of resources for the community. Please visit their website at: www.jewishmadison.org/jewish-madison-community-covid-19-resources
