Connections: The e-newsletter of JFFS, January 5, 2017


Connections - the e-newsletter of Jewish Federation & Family Services

Last year was an extraordinary year for Jewish Federation & Family Services, and the proof is in the numbers. We served thousands of people in need, built a more vibrant community, and enhanced lives from North to South Orange County, in Israel, and around the world. We could not have done any of it without your support. Together, we are providing light and hope. Thank you! Here’s to an even better 2017.
