Embrace-A-Family 2020 is Here!
Now extended through December 31st.

Jewish Family Services of Silicon Valley (JFS SV) makes

the winter holidays brighter for those in need through

our 13th annual Embrace-A-Family program.

Join us and help people at this especially challenging time.

Your generosity will help ease holiday pressures and stress

for families and seniors who would otherwise go without gifts.

Each year we are thrilled with your strong support. This year has presented challenges we couldn’t have imagined, yet with your generous support we can and will make this holiday season bright.

To maintain the safety of our staff, volunteers and clients during COVID 19,

this year our program is online.

Here's how the program works!

Our virtual dreidel board is being hosted by SignUpGenius, an online group organizing site, which partners with WePay, enabling donors to purchase their dreidels with a credit or debit card.

(A service fee of 5% of the purchase price plus $0.50 per transaction will be charged.)

You can select one or more dreidel wishes from the board and make your monetary contribution for the gift. You'll receive a letter of thanks from JFS SV, and we will ensure that the gift goes to the designated individual. You’ll bring joy and cheer to a very appreciative individual or family! 

Feel free to email this information to family and friends who live out of the area for their support of this vital program.
