JFS Dedicates Boardroom Wall Art to Staff and Community

Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties (JFS) brought together staff, Board members, community partners, and supporters on October 19th to dedicate a wall art installation in the Margate office boardroom. Inspired by the agency’s Anti-Racism Committee (ARC), the design was created to showcase the staff and the work they do in support of JFS’ core value “tikkun olam” (healing the world). The core value is written in seven languages and the wall displays three large screens highlighting staff, community and business supporters, volunteers, events, and awards. The dedication is another step in the agency’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
