Barbara Farber, Director of Development and Planned Giving, and Michelle Dowds, Manager of Business Development for JFCS’ Seniors At Home, will present an overview of JFCS’ comprehensive services, particularly services for seniors. Barbara will also speak to how JFCS’ Holocaust Center is responding in these difficult times of rising antisemitism and share updates on plans for a new, state-of-the-art Holocaust Center building as well as other services provided by JFCS.
