Jewish Family Services "Springs" into Action!
  April 2017   
Dear Friends, 
I hope your Passover c
elebration was meaningful - and delicious. My house was full of family and friends, and I feel very blessed to have enjoyed it all.

Now springtime is here in earnest - and we at JFS are getting ready to celebrate our wonderful volunteers. So we hope you can
join us on Thursday for our Volunteer Appreciation Event.
Happy spring to you!
Mindy Berkowitz
Executive Director
