Thank you to all of our Purim volunteers!

A heartfelt thank you to all of our Purim volunteers who came out this past weekend to cook, package and deliver meals to 140 seniors around the city. We are truly appreciative of the Beth Israel Synagogue for letting us use their kitchen as our workers prepared the soup, baked the hamataschen, and packed up the chicken to deliver. We continue to receive thank you calls and notes of appreciation from recipients. Showing our seniors that we care and keeping them connected to the Jewish community is what we are all about. Please consider helping support Jewish Family Services so that we can continue offering this program to our clients.

Remember any referrals are gratefully accepted and this is a free service to clients.

SUPPORT FOR QUALIFIED HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS

Jewish Family Services has been able to offer assistance to Holocaust survivors through the financial support of Claims Conference (The Conference on Jewish Material Claims against Germany) since 2015. Our services include housekeeping, shopping, transportation, cooking, companionship and so much more. In the past, some survivors have applied for these services and were rejected based on their war history, country of birth, financial status or lack of application to the Hardship fund. Many of these rules have changed in the past few years and we are inviting you to re-apply for the program to see if you are now a qualified candidate. You can contact Tatiana Kastner or Rhonda Eidelman at 780-454-1194 to discuss the status of yourself or a suitable relative or friend.

Thank you Volunteers!

As we move forward into 2019 Jewish Family Services wants to take this opportunity and thank our fabulous volunteers that have come out to support us meeting the needs of  our Seniors. Thanks for your financial support, cooking, packing and delivering our holiday meals. We look forward to your continued support in the New Year and bring a friend along to help. Thanks again!
