WHO we are

WHY we do it

We are guided by the Jewish values and traditions of advancing human dignity for everyone, community, responsibility, inter-generational ties, and repairing the world. We believe that all people from all walks of life who need help at any point in their life are deserved of dignity, health, attention. JFCS helps ensure that the poor, the elderly, and the sick will be cared for and are not alone.
