CEI has also developed initiatives to reach out to Jewish individuals who wish to maintain a connection and participate in a Jewish community, but may have been unable to do so for various reasons.   The initiatives focus on Jewish Blind and Visually Impaired individuals; persons living in Assisted Living, Residential Living and Nursing Home facilities; and those who cannot travel or are distant from a synagogue.  Please click on this link to find out about these exciting programs:
