Central Florida's Independent Jewish Voice

An opportunity to visit Jewish inmates

Chabad of North Orlando is launching a new initiative with the Aleph Institute, a Tikun Olam focused organization that works in the critical field of criminal justice and advocates for those incarcerated.

“We are initiating a program where volunteers can visit inmates one and one in the visiting room,” said Rabbi Yanky Majesky. “There are many Jewish inmates incarcerated in Coleman that have very few if any visitors. These Jewish men and women are looking to connect with someone to receive moral support, encouragement and spiritual guidance. This is an amazing opportunity to spread light to those who are in the darkest of places.”

To learn more about this program or to sign up, those interested can contact Sarah Schmukler at 310-598-2142, ext. 231 or sara@aleph-institute.org.
