JF&CS offers opportunities for Jewish adults with developmental disabilities or mental health challenges to learn, have fun, and spend time with friends.

Participants enjoy the ongoing support of their peers and a meaningful connection to Jewish tradition and the Jewish community.

Chaverim Chaim – Friends for Life

Chaverim Chaim (Friends for Life) is a partnership of JF&CS, JCC of Greater Boston, and Inclusion and Support Services. Chaverim Chaim is a social group for adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities and/or autism spectrum disorder that meets monthly for programs and events that provide opportunities for positive social interactions and informal educational experiences. Many events include programs with a Jewish focus but it is not necessary to be Jewish to attend. Programs include Shabbat dinners, movie nights, game nights, dances, and Jewish holiday celebrations.
