About JFCS of Greater Philadelphia

This has been a most challenging year.  The pandemic has taken so many lives, civil unrest has forced us to reckon with systemic racism, and xenophobia has promoted senseless hatred and blame.  In the midst of a pandemic, JFCS has pledged its commitment  to those that we serve and to making our community a better place to live for all. We exist to help individuals and families to heal during crisis and challenge which extends to contributing to a healthier and accepting world.

JFCS serves the greater community through the Jewish values of B’zelem Elohim, valuing each life as sacred; Kehillah, the strength that comes from community; and Tikkun Olam, our responsibility to aid in repairing the world.  We stand steadfastly with communities that experience racism, xenophobia, bullying, and bigotry. JFCS firmly condemns the targeting or harassment of any community. We unite together against hate and pledge solidarity with the Black, Asian Americans, and other community neighbors during these most challenging times.

I’m glad that you chose to take a look at the various services and programs that we are offering to  the community in these very challenging times.

JFCS is comprised of a group of committed professionals who are passionate about helping people to live better lives.

With all of the uncertainty and worry right now, please know that we are here to serve every person in the Greater Philadelphia area that needs our help.  Contributing to our world is core to our mission.  Feel free to give us a call, send us an email, or sign up for a resource.
