The Friendship Circle is today's fastest growing Jewish organization for children with special needs. With over 79 locations worldwide the Friendship Circle has cultivated friendships between 5,000 special children and close to 11,000 teen volunteers.

The Friendship Circle's unique approach brings together teenage volunteers and children with special needs for hours of fun and friendship. These shared experiences empower the children, our special friends, while enriching the lives of everyone involved.

Our special friends blossom and gain the confidence they need to make the most of their abilities and talents.

Their teen volunteers learn the priceless value of giving, the curative power of friendship, and the vital importance of integrating children with special needs into our communities.

Their parents and siblings receive much-needed respite and support from the Friendship Circle community, and all those who assist us.

The Friendship Circle links volunteers, children, parents, staff, and supporters in a seamless circle of friendship that makes miracles happen every day.

At the Friendship Circle of South Jerusalem, we focus on Friends at Home and host holiday parties and events throughout the year.
