Holocaust Survivor Assistance Program

Holocaust Survivor Assistance Program

Through grants from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims against Germany and the State of New Jersey, JFS is able to assist Holocaust survivors. Jews who resided in European countries, which were subject to Nazi rule and control between 1933 and 1945, are eligible.

They also must currently reside in the state of New Jersey. Services include home health care and companion services, case management services and Café Europa, socialization program for Nazi victims supported by a grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.

Other Resources for Holocaust Survivors

The Daffodil Project aspires to build a Living Holocaust Memorial by planting one and a half million daffodils around the world to commemorate the one and a half million children who were senselessly murdered in Nazi occupied Europe and in support of children suffering in humanitarian crises in the world today.

The shape and color of the daffodils represent the yellow stars that Jews were forced to wear during the Holocaust. Yellow is also the color of remembrance and these Daffodils represent our poignant hope for the future. They are resilient and return with a burst of color each spring.

In 2018, JFS along with The Jewish Federation and nine other local synagogues, churches and organizations planted daffodils and joined the worldwide Daffodil Project.
