Jewish Family Service (JFS) encourages strong families, thriving children, healthy adults, energized seniors and vital communities. JFS impacts thousands of lives throughout Atlantic & Cape May Counties each year.
What's NEW at JFS:
With the High Holidays approaching, now is the time to reflect on the past year. Jewish people will come together to count their blessings, ask for forgiveness and make amends, offer prayer, and perform good deeds. At the same time, it is important not to forget people still struggle to have a roof over their head and food on the table. You can help those in need. Donate to the JFS Friends Campaign this High Holiday season.
At JFS, staff and volunteers take pride in helping more than 13,000 people annually in the region. For some, that means providing nourishing food, basic essentials, and baby supplies. For others, JFS assists with counseling, vocational services, supportive housing, older adult programs and more. Regardless of the need, JFS is here to help.
Autumn is a delightful time to enjoy cool breezes and fun programs with JFS. In October, we’ll showcase 10 entertaining, informative and thought-provoking programs through The Lynn Kramer Village by the Shore. Plan to participate with friends, family and neighbors.

Bailey Pokres has been appointed to the position of Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) Coordinator for JFS. In this role, Bailey is responsible for working cohesively with more than 130 RSVP volunteers who each spend upward of three hours per week with the Shop at Home grocery orders and delivery, Friendly Check-In, and Kosher Meals on Wheels programs. The volunteers also assist with the High Holiday and Thanksgiving food collections. Knowing volunteers are the cornerstone of the agency, Bailey will work to recruit at least 25 new volunteers annually.
