The Preserve at Palm-Aire, a local senior living community, recently donated more than 180 eco-friendly, sturdy and reusable tote bags to the Broward County Jewish Family Services (JFS). The JFS has been providing thousands of families with KOLOT, a series of life-sustaining programs, for the past 50 years. The programs include mental health counseling, emergency financial assistance, care for seniors, clothing for children and much more. The tote bags will be used to deliver food to families in need.

“The Jewish Family Services feeds almost 200 frail, homebound seniors every month, and our volunteers deliver bags of food filled with more than two dozen staples, from tuna to dry milk, soups, cereals and snacks, all over Broward County,” said Ken Moskowitz, CEO of JFS. “We are grateful for The Preserve at Palm-Aire’s support of our Food Delivery Program and all the private donations. Every donation makes a difference.”

On average, the food pantry at Jewish Family Services delivers food to almost 200 families each month regardless of race, religion, income or status. The essence of its mission is to support those who face daily challenges, whether they are the normal transitions of life, new and unexpected hardships, or immediate crises and changing lives for the better to build a stronger Broward community.

Since 1999, JFS KOLOT has brought together organizations and individuals dedicated to raising awareness, promoting education and increasing services for victims of domestic abuse in the Jewish community. The JFS Domestic Abuse Program provides a 24/7 Crisis Line, counseling, case management, support groups, and financial assistance. KOLOT projects include Connect Cards, Teen Relationship Workshops, the Men’s Initiative and fundraising efforts.

Yom Tov is about spending time with your family. And while for some families the big once-in-a-lifetime experience is great, for others something low key is the way to go.

A fascinating glimpse into the rich complexity of medieval Jewish life and its contemporary relevance had intriguingly emerged.

Dear Dr. Yael:

My heart is breaking; my husband’s friend has gotten divorced. While this type of situation is always sad, here I do believe it could have been avoided.

The plan’s goal is to provide supportive housing to 200 individuals with disabilities by the year 2020.

Despite being one of the fastest-growing Jewish communities in the U.S. – the estimated Jewish population is 70-80,000 – Las Vegas has long been overlooked by much of the Torah world.

She was followed by the shadows of the Six Million, by the ever so subtle awareness of their vanished presence.

Pesach is so liberating (if you excuse the expression). It’s the only time I can eat anywhere in the house, guilt free! Matzah in bed!

Now all the pain, fear and struggle were over and they were home. Yuli was safe and free, a hero returned to his land and people.

While it would seem from his question that he is being chuzpadik and dismissive, I wonder if its possible, if just maybe, he is a struggling, confused neshama who actually wants to come back to the fold.

I agree with the letter writer that a shadchan should respectfully and graciously accept a negative response to a shidduch offer.

Alternative assessments are an extremely important part of understanding what students know beyond the scope of tests and quizzes.
