Jewish Family Services Brings the Love!
February 2020 
     
    
Dear Friends,
 
 
To me the month of February is all about love and seeing the first glimmerings of spring in California. The buds on my plum tree bring hope of a crop of sweet fruit this summer.
 
At JFS we celebrate our love and admiration for our nearly 700 volunteers - and get ready for our special day (March 18th!) where we bring the love at Good Morning JFS!
 
I hope to see you there.
 
With love,
 
 
Mindy

Centerpieces for Tzedakah!
 
C4T Centerpiece Basket
Flowers are lovely, but they wilt in a few days. Instead, why not rent beautiful JFS SV food basket Centerpieces for Tzedakah for your child's bar or bat mitzvah or other special occasion?
 
The rental fee directly benefits the Project NOAH Food Assistance Program, providing food year-round for the needy
in our community.
 





Support Our Refugee Services


Have a place in your heart for refugees? We do too! Support emergency services for refugees.  JFS provides pre-arrival support, vocational ESL and employment services, and legal advice.
