Areyvut’s Mitzvah Clowning Program is returning to its Clownroots…Bergen County!  We are happy to announce that our kickoff and training program for this year will take place this coming Sunday.  The program will run through June 2011, with participants going on friendly visits twice a month to local senior living facilities.  This program is geared for children (6th grade and up, exceptions are made), teens and adults.
Immediately following the initial Mitzvah Clown Training, participants will have a friendly visit at the Jewish Center of Teaneck with individuals from the Kaplen JCC Center for Older Adults.

Participants in this program will receive a clown costume, clown kit (clown make-up, mirror, clown nose, etc.), balloons, balloon pumps and more.  Mitzvah Clowns learn about the importance of bikkur cholim (visiting the sick) and how to interact with senior citizens, children with special needs and patients who are hospitalized.  Please click here for a tentative friendly visit schedule.
