Shalom Transportation

South Suburban Jewish community members who are 55 and older can register to use our transportation service. Each ride is $5 and you can travel up to 25 miles and you can use 10 rides each month. This program is generously funded by the Albert and Lucille Delighter and Marcella Winston Foundation, a Supporting Foundation of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago.

Shalom over 50

Shalom over 50 is run through JCC Chicago. The lively group is meeting on Zoom weekly and a delicious meal is delivered to your home every Tuesday, until we can safely meet in person. Membership in the club is $50 a year. To join, contact Ilene Uhlmann at

Looking to volunteer?

The JUF South Suburban office works with National Council of Jewish Women South Cook section and JUF’s TOV to create local opportunities for our community members to give back. Our volunteers deliver food from Maot Chitim for Rosh Hashanah and Passover. We also host drop off sites for the Nourish our Neighborhood’s program and participate in Good Deeds Day.
