Chaplain Aides Needed  

Bring the Light of Shabbat to Isolated Seniors 
Shabbat Meal Program   
Are you looking for a meaningful way to give back? JFS is seeking volunteers to become Chaplain Aides and lead one-hour Shabbat services monthly at local senior facilities on Friday afternoons or early evenings.
A Chaplain Aide should be comfortable leading a shortened Hebrew service and discussion, and developing a connection with seniors. This important mitzvah brings the light of Shabbat to isolated seniors.
Contact Lori Cinnamon, Manager of Community and Volunteer Engagement, at 408-357-7456 or loric@jfssv.org.
During this holiday season, help those in need in our community!

Vehicle Donations
