About Nominate a Senior

Nominate a Senior is a project of Chabad on the East Side. 

Our mission? To make it easy for family and friends to brighten the day of an elderly loved one! 

How? By nominating them to receive a shabbat care package!

Challah, wine, shabbat candles and a bouquet of flowers.

How it works

To nominate a senior click on the Nominate link below and fill out the form. You may choose to include a personalized message as well.

Shabbat packages will be delivered to your senior’s door on Thursday or Friday of that week. 

Once a senior has received a package, they will then have the opportunity to be a “carrier of kindness” and nominate two of their own friends to receive shabbat care packages.

To participate as a volunteer for package prep and delivery click the Volunteer link below. 

All packages are prepared and delivered following strict COVID - 19 safety guidelines.
