JFCS provides quality social and community services across the life spectrum to enhance the lives of families, children, and individuals. Guided by Jewish values, the services are available to all in the Greater Philadelphia Region. Our Volunteer Services department works collaboratively with the student to help design and implement a community service project to support JFCS. Many mitzvah project opportunities can be arranged including:

  • Work with seniors on computers as a Senior Surfer
  • Bake and donate or sell challah through Challah Bakes
  • Get out and Walk-plan a walk to sponsor JFCS
  • Lead Shabbat services on a Friday evening
  • Guided conversations with seniors – L’dor V’dor
  • Play the Wii with seniors- Fun with Wii

Details of these community service projects can be found in the Mitzvah tool kit on the JFCS website.
