Rosh Hashanah with JFS

By Chelsea Karp

‚ÄčVolunteer Coordinator

Rosh Hashanah is a great opportunity for Jewish Family Service of the Lehigh Valley to partner with other local agencies to help older adults in our community celebrate the High Holidays. Marcia Schechter, outreach coordinator for JFS, will be delivering Rosh Hashanah gift bags to over 100 older adults who are either living in various residential communities or are clients of Jewish Family Service. Each gift bag has an individual honey cake that the students of Muhlenberg Hillel have made, a handmade card that was created by students of the JCC kindergarten class and the JCC campers, honey sticks and a holiday decoration for their home. At JFS, we feel that we are stronger when we work together, which is why we treasure our partnerships.
