Since the establishment of Smile on Seniors in 2009, a new day has dawned for the golden age Jewish population in Phoenix and environs. In its first four years, SOS, a volunteer fueled organization dedicated to enriching the lives of seniors in our midst, has experienced remarkable growth, and its varied contributions have been widely recognized.

    SOS flagship service remains its home visitation program by twinning volunteers with a senior “buddy.” SOS offers pre-holiday workshops, Challah baking and discussions with the Rabbi in various retirement and assisted living communities. Additionally, SOS offers Jewish Seniors and active adults Shabbat dinners, holiday themed programming, monthly programs and the popular Its Your Birthday program. Finally, SOS offers fabulous programs and events just for its growing community of volunteers.

    Our state is home to one of the largest elderly populations in the country. Far from family and without regular visitors, many of them feel their life seeping away. Our program and volunteers bring a sense of self respect and appreciation to the senior; replacing depression with hope. In cherishing and honoring our seniors we teach this Jewish value to the next generation and our collective future shines brighter
