JFS Refugee Services Needs Your Support!  
The travel ban has resulted in a loss of about $100,000 to JFS' refugee support programs. We need your support to ensure that refugees in our care - often for 2 or more years - can become productive, contributory American citizens. Learn how you can help here. 

Help those in need during the coming year!
