Together We Stand

JFS stands in solidarity with Israelis here and abroad

On October 7, Hamas terrorists launched a heinous attack on Israeli civilians. As a Jewish social service agency, our mission is to support the well-being of our community. During a time of crisis, this becomes our priority. We also know that while our doors are open to everyone, we have a lasting connection to our Jewish community. We join others in praying for the peace and safety of our people and community.
