Posted on April 25, 2024

Jewish Family Service of Atlantic & Cape May Counties (JFS) received a $204,497 grant from the Claims Conference Social Services Program to assist the 20 Holocaust survivors who live in this region. JFS provides essential programs and services to Survivors including homecare, case management, emergency financial assistance, Kosher meals, transportation, socialization programs and more.

“At JFS, we are honored and dedicated to taking care of Holocaust survivors in our county,” said Andrea Steinberg, JFS Chief Executive Officer. “Our staff is committed to providing essential support, which hopefully immeasurably adds to their quality of life as they age with grace, dignity and independence.”

“The care and support of Holocaust survivors is not just our mission as an organization, it is our moral duty. We are proud to support the great work being done by JFS ensuring that survivors in their area are being cared for in their homes with the dignity that was stripped from them in their youth,” said Greg Schneider, Executive Vice President, Claims Conference.

Founded in 1951 by representatives of 23 major international Jewish organizations, the Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference) negotiates for and disburses funds to individuals and organizations and seeks the return of Jewish property stolen during the Holocaust. In 2024, the Claims Conference will distribute approximately $888 million in grants to over 300 social service agencies worldwide which supports over 115,000 Holocaust survivors.
