Spring Celebration – Dear JFS Community

Dear JFS Community,

Jewish Family Service is very fortunate to have the privilege of honoring these extraordinary individuals, Debra & Richard Epstein and Betsy Flaherty. We wish them a warm Mazel Tov for the many years of dedication, leadership and most importantly their lasting impact they continue to have on the JFS community.

In light of the continuing uncertainty from socializing in large gatherings, we regret we have to cancel our JFS event on September 1, 2020. We continue to honor them in our hearts as we move forward to preserve safety for everyone.

We appreciate your positive spirit and patience as we try to navigate our way through this process. All of your good wishes matter so much to our honorees and to all of us at JFS.

JFS will present Debra, Richard and Betsy with a Spring Celebration Program, which includes everyone who donated to JFS in their honor, along with a beautiful Judaica gift for each of them. 

We hope that if you’ve already purchased tickets, you will permit us to retain your funds as a donation in their honor to support the critical services we provide.  However, if you’ve already purchased tickets and would like to be reimbursed or if you have any questions, please email me or call me.

If you haven’t donated in their honor but still wish to do so, we would be very grateful. You may click on the Spring Celebration 2020 link here. Please donate by July 24, 2020 to have your name included in the program.

We thank our honorees for their numerous years of service which have enabled JFS to serve those in need.  It is our hope that the JFS community can toast a L’Chaim to them in person in 2021 when we can all be together.  Thank you so much for your support and generosity.
