JFS would like to thank all of the generous sponsors, supporters and attendees for helping make our 2018 Spring Celebration honoring Joe Adler a success! The Spring Celebration, which took place on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at the JCC in Woodbridge, was attended by over 250 people.
Master of Ceremony Joel Sachs, JFS Board Member, introduced such esteemed speakers as Rabbi Herbert Brockman of Congregation Mishkan Israel in Hamden, Joel Karp, long-time friend of Joe Adler, and Amy Rashba, JFS’s Acting Executive Director.
Rachel Scolnic Dobin, Director of the JFS Social Work Outreach Services Program (SOS), discussed Joe Adler’s vision and the founding of the original program nearly 8 years ago. The night included live music provided by Tim Moran Woodwinds, testimonials from beneficiaries of the SOS Program and a history of the extensive contributions made by Joe Adler to the Jewish community, Greater New Haven community and Israel.
Proceeds from the JFS Spring Celebration will benefit the SOS Program – which offers assistance with vocational and employment services, case management, financial and food assistance.
