The Friendship Circle is based on the Biblical commandment of V’Ahavta L’Reacha Kamocha, “to love your fellow as yourself.”,

The Friendship Circle carries out that concept in life-changing ways by:

Engaging children and teens with special needs through a full range of experiences.

Supporting parents and members with much needed respite and support.

Enriching, inspiring and motivating teens to share their time and talents with others.

And connecting teen volunteers, children with special needs, and their families to the Jewish community through educational and social opportunities.

By fulfilling its mission, the Friendship Circle is helping to build a better world for children with special needs, one good deed at a time.
