The 16th Annual Senior Adult Chanukah party is in the books. Seniors, Holocaust survivors, and family members from all over the community enjoyed a traditional holiday lunch, the sounds of Viva Klezmer!, hand-made cards from the students at Charlotte Jewish Day School and everyone was especially delighted by the performance given by Charlotte Jewish Preschool.
Jewish Family Services extends a heartfelt thank you to everyone who made this year’s Dreidel Drive an overwhelming success. Dreidels and stars were posted on displays throughout Shalom Park and at the Preschool on Sardis.
JFS has been helping the community for almost 40 years. It has been the primary resource, and place to go for those struggling with mental health, food insecurity, domestic violence, parenting, and aging.
The spirit of generosity is perhaps most evident through the holiday season. At JFS we are blessed, year-round, by the generosity of our community who gives in so many ways. This month we shine a light on one of the ways our community gives to JFS – through the JFS food pantry.
When the cast of the Broadway show, The Band’s Visit, heard there were Holocaust survivors in the audience they made it a point to come out after the show to mingle with them. Everyone was delighted.
