Welcome Friendship House
The Daniel B. Sobel Friendship House provides support and guidance to individuals and families struggling with isolation and other life crises, such as addiction, through a welcoming Jewish recovery community that offers friendship, support, and a variety of programs that facilitate lasting success.
Those who have struggled through difficult periods and returned to healthier lifestyles are in the best position to help those currently in need. The Friendship House has been very successful in creating a community environment where Jewish people in recovery can meet their peers, form supportive relationships, and enjoy alcohol-free events such as monthly Shabbat dinners and holiday celebrations.
Dinner N Learn

Participants come together throughout the year to have a good time in a safe and sober environment. Whether at a BBQ, a bowling event, or game night- it’s a great way to meet new friends in recovery, and catch up with old ones!
