Beth Tzedec Welcome Circles
Beth Tzedec
Apr 2nd 2022

In support of JIAS’s work in settling newcomers from Ukraine, we will be creating "Beth Tzedec Welcome Circles".

Welcome Circles are teams of five to eight volunteers who will be matched with an individual or family unit of newcomers for a six-month to one-year commitment. 
The goal of Welcome Circles is to provide coordinated support for newcomers and to help them feel settled and cared for.

Welcome circles may involve a variety of responsibilities depending on the needs of the newcomer(s) including:

  • welcoming the family at the airport
  • offering/securing temporary housing
  • helping to find long term housing
  • English language supports
  • registering children for school and other programs
  • social support/friendship
  • communication with the family’s JIAS Toronto Settlement Worker
