Every year during Passover JFS and volunteers from the community with the assistance of Rabbi Wilansky, come together and assembles and deliver Seder plates and Passover food to the elderly.
To help those with limited access to attend services during the High Holidays, volunteers deliver a delicious care package with apples, honey, and round challahs as well as Shanah Tova (good year) greetings to seniors in supported living communities.
Hanukkah Lights Program - during Hanukkah, those in need of assistance with holiday gifts and winter gear fill out wish lists for themselves and their family. Donors may choose to adopt a family and shop for toys, coats and boots, or they may provide monetary support for an individual child. The recipient is anonymous to the donor. In 2015 with combined efforts from the community we were able to give gifts to over 100 children.
We celebrate the community giving with a Tzedakah (righteous giving) party after we complete the program each year, come join us!
