Jewish Family Service of MetroWest NJ provides services to address the ongoing mental health needs of the community, as well as the needs that have arisen due to the war in Israel. Recently, JFS provided professional training for clinicians on Attachment Based Family Therapy and celebrated the graduation of a class of Rachel Coalition’s 40-hour volunteer training participants.
JFS Maxine Myers Volunteer Services made Thanksgiving meal deliveries to more than 155 homebound older adults and Holocaust survivors. The volunteers delivered another 153 meals for Chanukah, with brisket, sides, dessert, challah, jelly donuts, candles, a dreidel, and gelt. During Café Europa, the socialization program for Holocaust survivors, JFS hosted a special Chanukah celebration.
