Thank You For Your Donations
JFS sends a HUGE thank you to everyone who contributed toward the Ukraine donation drive. We collected much-needed medical supplies, as well as personal care and basic hygiene items to send over to Ukraine (via Poland). Donations were dropped off on Thursday, March 10 at the Ukrainian Orthodox Holy Ascension Cathedral.
We appreciate all donations made and hope you join us in sending prayers for peace to stop the Russia-Ukraine war. If you would like to make a monetary donation to help the humanitarian crisis, please give to the Jewish Federation in the Heart of NJ. For more information on how to help please email us at media@jfsmiddlesex.org.
JFS Citizenship Students Overcome Fear
Part of what makes JFS' Citizenship Classes exceptional is the dedicated instructors that help empower and position their students for success, as well as the community of students that share their experiences about the citizenship process.
Students like Ingrid who recently became a naturalized citizen and shared her story with her class. She explained that while she was nervous at first, the course prepared her to be confident in responding to questions and following instructions. She gave her classmates helpful tips like "make sure to listen carefully and don't be afraid to ask for a question to be repeated, use a file folder to organize your documents, and arrive early because parking may be difficult." JFS prides itself on helping individuals from various backgrounds achieve their goals, which we could not do without the encouraging community of clients and students. Our impact grows when clients feel empowered to share their experiences to help others.
JFS Citizenship Preparation classes are free, meet once per week for 3 hours, and are available online or in-person to individuals who have completed their citizenship application.
To learn more about JFS Citizenship Programs, call 732-777-1940 or email office@jfsmiddlesex.org. Help JFS students become naturalized citizens with your donation.
