Join JFS in Investing in Amazing Women

When it comes to achieving professional and personal goals, finding the right support makes all the difference. JFS Women's Center is here to help displaced homemakers (individuals who are single parents, divorced, separated, widowed or living with a disabled partner---who are seeking to achieve self-sufficiency) tackle life’s challenges and attain success.

As Ms. A, a Women's Center client notes, "I was going through a lot of mental problems at home. The ladies here are very helpful -- helping me to pay for school, find a job, and through the workshops they have." She credits JFS staff with empowering her to change her situation. Now a Medical Assistant, Ms. A enjoys the work she does but admits that staying focused and being able to identify the type of help she needed was critical in achieving her goals. "If someone is investing in you, you have to apply yourself...If you have a problem, [JFS] will help you, but you have to help them, help you." We are very proud of Ms. A's achievements including her steadfast confidence in her own ability to succeed.

The JFS Women's Center offers free individualized support for displaced homemakers. For more information, email womenscenter@jfsmiddlesex.org or call 732-777-1940. Please consider donating to support displaced homemakers as they work hard to improve the future for themselves and their families.

Hazak Is Back!

Mark Your Calendar for Next Month

This month, JFS Senior Services kicked off Hazak, a collaborative initiative of JFS, the East Brunswick Jewish Center (EBJC) and the Jewish Federation in the Heart of NJ, aimed at helping local seniors stay connected with their community through a kosher congregate meal and socialization program.


Approximately 80 seniors attended the welcome back dinner on September 8th, enjoying a healthy kosher meal and lively music. As one of JFS' Senior Services congregate meal programs, Hazak helps to promote wellbeing and nutrition among seniors, a group disproportionately plagued by social isolation and depression. This program runs from September to June each year at EBJC for county residents 55 and over; registration is required. 

If you know someone interested in joining Hazak, contact Judy Cavaliere at 732-777-1940 or email office@jfsmiddlesex.org. Additionally, you can learn more at ebjc.org/hazak.


Support the work of JFS' Senior Services by donating online or reaching out to learn how you can volunteer at upcoming senior events. We thank you for your support!

Our mission is unattainable without the commitment of our incredible volunteers who helped make 2021 a memorable year of service! At JFS, we are more than the numbers we serve, our impact stems from our core values and honoring our contributors who help us achieve our mission and more.
