We are asking you to join with us, once again, so we can continue to help those most in need in the community. Donations to our Friends Campaign directly supports our programs and services that help individuals and families who are struggling locally here in Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren Counties.
We are committed to the mission of JFS – “to preserve and strengthen the quality of individual, family and community life based on Jewish values". We believe that our Jewish values of integrity, working together for the common good, humility, gratitude, hope, inclusion, renewal, service transcend to all, and serve as the foundation of a strong inclusive culture of JFS. We strive to provide quality programs and services to all who come to us in need. To continue to do this we need your support. The Pandemic is gradually ending but community needs will continue and JFS needs to be there to help.
