"There are three things on which the world stands: Torah, Avodah (prayer) and Gemilut Hasadim (acts of loving kindness)." -Pirkei Avot

JFCS is also dedicated to Tikkun Olam - repairing the world. Each and every day our professionals, our volunteers and our supporters strive to make the world a better place. This year's JFCS Gala on November 16th also embraces the theme of Tikkun Olam.
