Embrace-A-Family for Hanukkah 2019

November 15th through December 15th


Jewish Family Services of Silicon Valley (JFS SV)

makes a Hanukkah brighter for those in need.


JFS SV invites you to be a part of our 12th annual

Embrace-A-Family Hanukkah program which brings

hope and smiles to those in need.  Your gifts will help

ease holiday pressures and stress for needy families,

senior citizens, and adults. Frail, isolated seniors are

often overlooked at this time of year.  Providing gifts

for them is a special mitzvah that will make a huge

positive difference in their lives.

What You Can Do to Help!


Look for JFS SV dreidel boards in the community from November 15th through December 15th.  The boards will be at these locations:


- Levy Family Campus (main and Yavneh/APJCC preschool lobbies, and upstairs at JFS SV offices)

- Brandeis of Santa Clara County

- Congregation Beth Am

- Congregation Beth David

- Congregation Beth David Hazak (for gift cards)

- Congregation Emeth

- Congregation Shir Hadash

- Congregation Sinai

- Fragomen Worldwide

- Joann's Bon Appetit Lunch Group

- Moishe House

- SmartOrg

- Temple Emanu-El

- Temple Beth Torah

- Pars Kosher Market

- The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

- The Jewish Group at the Villages

- South Peninsula Hebrew Day School

- St. Luke’s Episcopal Church


Select a gift dreidel from the board, purchase the gift listed, and bring your unwrapped gift to the JFS SV office at the Levy Family Campus, 14855 Oka Road, Suite 202, Los Gatos, CA.


Your gift will bring a smile - and be a blessing - to someone in need.


We will also feature these special dreidels:

Emergency Food Bags for families, seniors, and individuals; Shabbat Meals from Pars; donations to Emergency and Transportation Funds for Refugees; and gift cards to supermarkets and discount stores.
