JFS SV recently celebrated the retirement of CEO Mindy Berkowitz (2003- 2022) with a lovely garden party at the home of Board Chair Ruth Bareket and her husband Noah. Supervisor Susan Ellenberg spoke and presented Mindy with a commendation from the County of Santa Clara Board of Supervisors. Mindy’s legacy will live on with the Berkowitz Kosher Food Assistance Program named in her honor. The program encompasses the only Kosher food pantry in Silicon Valley, holiday food bags, grocery store gift cards and all food assistance programs serving JFS SV clients who face food insecurity. Congratulations Mindy and thank you for all your years of service!
