The Blessing Exchange

A Service Program for Jewish Teens and Young Adults with Autism and Neurodiverse Abilities in cooperation with Los Angeles Senior Living Communities and other Local Service Organizations

The Blessing Exchange is designed to bring teens and young adults with Autism and other Neurodiverse Abilities together with seniors living in Senior Living Communities to build relationships of meaning and service culminating in monthly Jewish Holiday and Shabbat Programming. Recently expanded to include additional acts of service in the community.

At its core, The Blessing Exchange is about living life with meaning and holiness. It is about menschlichkeit. It is about agency to do something meaningful in the service of others – to make a difference.

All Jewish Life Programs' students are welcome to participate in The Blessing Exchange.

Classes are held on Thursdays at Vista Del Mar, 3200 Motor Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90034
