Milestone: JFS' Newest Citizen
Congratulations to Ms. S, a young woman from El Salvador who passed her citizenship test last week! Ms. S enrolled in the JFS citizenship classes to improve her English for better opportunities for herself and her daughter. Now that she is an American citizen, Ms. S would like to pursue additional teaching credentials, as she is currently a teaching assistant at a preschool.

The JFS Citizenship Program offers free classes for permanent residents to prepare for the naturalization test. To learn more or donate, visit our website.
Celebrating Valentine's Day Among Friends
Valentine's Day isn't only for lovers!
This day, like most holidays, offers an opportunity to show compassionate love and appreciation to our family, friends and community.

As one of the congregate meal programs under JFS Senior Services, Lunch With Friends celebrated Valentine's Day by engaging members in discussion of love, wisdom and friendship.

Each week, participants receive a ride via JFS transportation, enjoy a healthy, kosher meal, and socialize among friends, both new and old.

Donations made to JFS Senior Services help ensure that seniors are eating well and staying connected to promote longevity and good physical and mental health.

If you would like more information on this program, call 732-777-1940 or email office@jfsmiddlesex.org.

Participants take part in a quick exercise routine.
Seniors share cherished memories of loved ones.
Members enjoy a healthy, kosher meal each week.
