JFS Wishes You a Happy, Healthy New Year!
September 2018    
Tishri - 5779    
Dear Friends,
Lori and Paul bottle honey for our High Holiday packages 
Here we are, perched on a new year - 5779.
What will you fill it with? If the words "caring", "doing", and "appreciation" are part of your Rosh Hashonah vocabulary, come be part of the JFS family - as a volunteer, donor, or even a staff member.
My best wishes to you and yours for a sweet new year!
Shana tova tikateivu,
Mindy Berkowitz
Executive Director
JFS SV is Hiring!
Senior Services Social Worker
Part-Time Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner 
JFS is hiring two positions for our branch office at Chai House.  We are seeking skilled professionals who love older adults and want to be part of a caring staff team.
Refugees Need Help with Housing 
JFS recently welcomed refugees who don't have sponsor families. As a way to open our hearts to refugees who don't have sponsors, we are reaching out to the community for help with housing, transportation, furnishing apartments, food -- just about everything someone would need who comes here with only two suitcases.
This is a great opportunity for a havurah or other friendship group to do something very meaningful.
If you can help, please contact Zoya Lazer, Director of Refugee and Career Services at (408) 357-7452 or zoyal@jfssv.org.  
Start the New Year By Giving Back
