The unprecedented impact that the COVID-19 virus has created surrounding the re-opening of schools for parents, teachers and students causes a plethora of uncertainty. At Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties, we are working cohesively with The Rothenberg Center, the educational arm of the agency, to develop and offer free virtual educational workshops for families and teachers in September.

“At JFS, we are committed to responding to the communities needs with food, counseling, virtual programs and more. It’s important to assure that JFS remains at the forefront to help residents navigate the new normal all of us are experiencing from this pandemic,” said Andrea Steinberg, JFS Chief Executive Officer.
