The Jewish emphasis on community and caring for each other is inherent in our tradition. The investment in the ongoing services of Jewish Family Services (JFS) helps to ensure that every Jewish person in Greater Indianapolis has a place to turn to for help and during a time of crisis. Beyond immediate one-on-one support from a Social Worker, the most important resource available for the community is JFS’ Emergency Financial Assistance Fund.

Through these dollars, JFS helps Jewish families during crisis secure their most basic and immediate needs.
