Recently, the board, staff, and members of Congregation Har HaShem generously donated 40 mishloach manot Purim baskets for the seniors and adults with disabilities whom Boulder Jewish Family Service (JFS) serves. The mitzvah of giving mishloach manot is meant to ensure that everyone has enough food for the Purim feast and to increase love and friendship among Jews as a counter to Haman’s assertion that the Jewish people are characterized by strife and discord.
Twenty-six JFS volunteers delivered the baskets and our clients were so appreciative of this act of kindness!
Founded more than 150 years ago, we currently offer more than 30 programs and services, including food security, housing stability, mental health counseling, aging care, employment support, and disability services. JFS takes a holistic approach, assessing the various needs of the individual or family and provides the appropriate services all from one organization.
