Free befriending service with Jewish Online
Jewish Online has rolled out a free phone befriending service to combat loneliness during the coronavirus lockdown. The initiative is aimed at members of the community who are unable to access the internet or who prefer a phone call to other methods of communication.
Since the service was launched this week, over 100 phone calls have been made to people identified at risk of social isolation, including a network of Holocaust survivors.
The Jewish cultural centre in Finchley, forced to close to the public last month to reduce the risk of the virus spreading, recently unveiled a new online cultural hub, entitled JewishOnline.
For many people, hearing a friendly voice on the phone at this tough time will make the world of difference. Anyone who would appreciate a weekly phone call is most welcome to sign up.
To receive a weekly phone call, you can contact Forman on [email protected] or on 07927646437 between 10am and 4pm.
