JFS Makes Final Push
On Back To School Drive!
July 2019     
Dear Friends,
I recently returned from a long-anticipated trip to Israel. One of the many things I love about Israel is that there is something intriguing around every corner - like this beautiful grotto in Rosh Hanikra.
JFS is like that too! There are always new ways to get involved throughout the agency.

Equipped to Learn Back to School Drive
Now thru July 31st 
Naomi Sabes celebrated her Bat Mitzvah and donated these backpacks that were used as centerpieces at her party 
You can help JFS SV clients , ranging in ages from pre-schoolers through young adult learners, be better prepared for back-to-school and ready to learn.
There are a range of ways to help with this year's drive.  Buy supplies yourself and deliver in person to JFS, buy online through Target, or buy gift cards. 
Don't wait, participate today!
