FRIENDSHIP CIRCLE LOS ANGELES
In 2020 Gabe Freeman, Jeff’s nephew, contributed to Friendship Circle’s Friend at Home Program as part of their Covid programming.
The Jeff Astor Foundation has also donated a water play table to The Friendship Circle of Los Angeles for their new playground. It’s a perfect component in “My Backyard”, Friendship Circle’s state-of- the-art inclusive playground, accessible to children of all abilities.
The Friendship Circle’s mission is (1) to provide Jewish children who have special needs with a full range of social, recreational, educational and Judaic experiences; (2) to provide their parents with respite and support; and (3) to enrich, inspire and motivate Jewish teenagers through sharing of themselves with others.
