The Soul Café provides a mouthwatering kosher menu featuring gourmet soups, salads, sandwiches pizzas, pastas and more in a warm and relaxed environment.
Complete with a community table, fireplace and outdoor dining the Soul Cafe provides an excellent opportunity to meet friends, get some work done or grab a quick bite.
The cafe is part of Friendship Circle's Soul Projects, which focuses on providing vocational opportunities to adults with special needs. The cafe teaches adults with special needs the skills of food prep, cooking, hosting and serving.
Inspired by the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Friendship Circle was born in 1994 in West Bloomfield. Rabbi Levi and Bassie Shemtov paired eight teen-volunteers with eight children with special needs, matching teens in need of purpose with special kids in need of friendship and acceptance.
Friendship Circle, blessed by the warm embrace and generous support of the community, now operates a widely emulated, state-of-the-art educational & activity center. Friendship Circle has now over 700 teen and adult volunteers and serves thousands of families with children who have special needs.
Upon graduation from Friendship Circle programming, many adults with challenges find themselves socially isolated - without an outlet or employment. The Farber Center is home to the Dresner Foundation Soul Studio and Soul Cafe, which provide a loving and inclusive environment for artistic self-expression, vocational training, and employment opportunities.
