Shabbat Volunteers

We are always looking for Rabbi’s, Cantor’s or just enthusiasts that want to lead us though a Friday night.  If you have a love for Shabbat join us for a Friday night dinner at the Selfhelp home. Lead us through the blessings followed by conducting a Friday night service in our sanctuary for our residents and guests.

The Selfhelp Home Gift Shop Volunteers

Join our team in the gift shop. A 100% volunteer run gift shop that sells European chocolates, and a wide variety of baby gifts, toys, jewelry and accessories. Come and be a central part of our community and meet our residents, family and friends.


If you have a love for plants and flowers come and help during our garden club that meets once a week during the Spring and Summer months. Lead us by sharing your knowledge about gardening or just listen with a resident. Either way you will enjoy an afternoon outside on our rooftop garden.

Shopping for Residents

Help residents by running errands for them.

Friendly Visitors

Spend some time visiting with our residents. Take a walk together, have some coffee or a visit in their apartment .
