JFS Celebrates 120 Years

Our hearts are filled with gratitude!

On Saturday, April 6, 2019, JFS was joined by community members and leaders to celebrate our 120th Birthday – it was a night to remember!

It’s amazing that, after 120 years, Jewish Family Services of Delaware continues to build upon the traditions and values of our founders. We are committed to supporting our community in meaningful ways – one person, one story at a time.

See the video below for a look at just 3 of JFS’ many success stories.

Thank you for celebrating JFS’ history and supporting JFS’ future; here’s to 120 more years of repairing the world! L’Chaim!
