Within the centre, all Jewish holidays are observed and celebrated, with a Rosh Hashana party held every year and a Channukah party hosted for the workers by the Ladies Guild of the Gardens Synagogue. The Centre itself is used in the training of social workers from the University of Cape Town under the direct supervision of Director Merle Furman.
