Energy, animated conversation, delectible nibbles from many community vendors, lots of creative and useful silent auction items, entertaining posters from historic films, and a spirit of affection and appreciation for all the honorees infused this year's Small Plates celebration with delight and a warm sense of community.
JFS warmly thanks everyone who helped make Small Plates Celebrates a great success!

Passover Freedom Drive 2014
Because Passover is our most important "freedom" holiday -- the event which led us from slavery to freedom, it is appropriate that we always conduct a fundraising drive to give our clients and their families freedom from suffering -- suffering from illness, unemployment, bereavement, or hunger. We truly believe that, only by caring for others in need, do we understand the gifts of health, security, and happiness in a rich and liberating way.
We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to acknowledge all the good that you and your family experience, and to express your appreciation by reaching out a caring hand to others. This is the purpose and meaning of our annual Passover Freedom Drive. We encourage you to print out a donation form that will connect you to our Jewish community by demonstrating your caring and generosity in support of all our programs. Thank you so very much.
