Social Action


The "Embrace-a-Family at Chanukah" program is officially underway! This program is run by Jewish Family Services of Silicon Valley (JFSSV).  

Jewish Family Services of Silicon Valley (JFSSV) makes a Hanukkah brighter for those in need, and invites you to be a part of their 12th annual

Embrace-A-Family Chanukah program which brings hope and smiles to those in need. Your gifts will help ease holiday pressures and stress for needy families, senior citizens, and adults. Frail, isolated seniors are often overlooked at this time of year. Providing gifts for them is a special mitzvah that will make a huge positive difference in their lives.

Dreidel boards with wish cards identifying individuals' unique needs will be available in the office and Social Hall beginning Friday, 11/15! Please stop by and pick up a wish card, then return your unwrapped gift and dreidel tag to the office by Sunday, 12/15, and put a large smile on someone's face! In addition to specific Chanukah items on the Dreidel tags, JFFSV will happily accept gift cards for places like Walmart, Target, Safeway, Trader Joe’s, and gas station that will help needy families year-round. For your shopping convenience, there will be an online Target Gift Registry.
