Dear Friend,

As we celebrate the beginning of a New Year, and yet still struggle with the impact of the recent pandemic, we are reminded how important family and community are in our lives and the importance of working together for the common good.

For us at JFS, that means caring about those struggling with the challenges of everyday life and it helps us recommit ourselves to the mission of JFS – “to preserve and strengthen the quality of individual, family and community life based on Jewish values”.

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.

The Pandemic is gradually ending but community needs will continue and JFS needs to be there to help

Please join with us and support our programs and services helping all those in need in the community

  • Holocaust Survivor Support Program
  • The Betty and Arthur Roswell Family Counseling Center Expanding Horizons Special Needs Programs
  • Career Counseling Services
  • Senior Services
  • Family Mentoring and Volunteer Services

  Become a Friend of JFS Today & Make a Difference

Your donation this year will help to cover the costs of in-person and tele-therapy for those without insurance, the return of in-person home visits to frail seniors and Holocaust survivors, social learning groups for kids struggling with peer relationships, career counseling for those displaced by the pandemic and increased demand for Emergency Food Assistance as more and more people find themselves losing ground in the current economy.

From all of us here at JFS, we wish you and your family a Happy and Healthy New Year
