Café Europa: October Edition

JFS Holocaust Survivors enjoyed an afternoon of delicious food and lively conversation at this month's Café Europa. Survivors like Mary and Fanny (pictured) spent time with JFS volunteers (Alan B. pictured) and listened to live music from guest singer Rick as he sang throwback songs from the 40s, 50s, and 60s.

“What we’re doing here is important,” explained Jack, a volunteer who regularly helps out with Café Europa and other JFS programs and services. “They came from a period today that we can’t even fathom, but they overcame and persevered.” Thank you to everyone for pulling off yet another successful Café Europa for our Holocaust Survivors!

Café Europa is a monthly socialization program that encourages and supports bonds among Holocaust Survivors while they enjoy nutritious food and live entertainment. JFS staff and volunteers work hard to ensure that the Holocaust Survivors have a great time with their friends. Please consider a donation to help us ensure that they have what they need to age safely and comfortably at home: call 732-777-1940, email office@jfsmiddlesex.org, or donate online today. Thank you!

Holiday Meals for Seniors

JFS gives a special thank you to Sara Culang of the Stein Hospice Wilf Campus for donating 40 cases of kosher shelf-stable meals. As the Community Liaison volunteer services manager in her organization, Sara is dedicated to making sure that the most vulnerable members of the community are well nourished. Thank you for choosing JFS to help feed those in need!

Sara's act of service will not only help stock the JFS Kosher Food Pantries but will also provide meals to our Kosher Meals on Wheels (KMOW) clients during the holidays. Support from the community goes a long way in helping homebound seniors who have limited access to groceries and regular meals.
