Caring for those in need is called social justice by some and philanthropy by others or a mitzvah. Whatever we call it, the act of giving help to those who need it most not only builds community but rewards the giver, too.
JEWISH FAMILY SERVICE
One of our partner agencies, delivers many social services all over greater New Haven, from Shelton to Cheshire and Milford to Chester, including job training, food assistance and programs for adults with developmental disabilities. In cooperation with all the congregational rabbis in our area, JFS’s Center for Wellness and Healing hosts on-going support groups for the bereaved, the unemployed and others in need.
