JFS Shabbat Meal Program
Now in its 10th year!
Since 2009, JFS has brought delicious, kosher Shabbat meals to isolated seniors, adults and families. This program is entirely community supported. We'd like to double the amount of recipients from 15 to 30. Won't you help support us? 100% of your gift goes directly to the cost of the meals?
Operation Dignity 
As a community, we can never accept that a Holocaust survivor may have to choose between a warm, healthy meal and a life-saving prescription. That's why we partnered with Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley to launch Operation Dignity - a campaign to provide for the emergency needs of local Holocaust survivors. 100% of all funds raised go directly to our survivors' urgent needs, specifically dental, vision, medical, emergency rent and food.

A big THANK YOU from all of us at Jewish Family Services and Jewish Federation! Because of your support, Operation Dignity raised over $37,000 for local Holocaust survivors living in poverty. With matching gifts from KAVOD SHEF and the Seed the Dream Foundation, together we raised $62,976.

We are so grateful for our partnership with Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley and you.

For more information about services for Holocaust survivors, please contact Hilla Flohr at 408.357.7467 or email her at hillaf@jfssv.org.

To contribute to the 2020 Operation Dignity Campaign, and ensure our survivors can live their final years with love and compassion please contact Allison Zur at 408.357.7491 or allisonz@jfssv.org.
