Would you and/or your organization like to participate in honoring Dr. Herschel & Jill Rosenzweig by sponsoring the 2014 Celebration of Caring Luncheon and/or placing ads/tributes in the event program?

At this year’s 2014 Celebration of Caring Luncheon on April 24th, we are honoring the Rosenzweigs for their long service to JFCS and our community’s children. Jill is the Chair of the JFCS Board of Directors and Herschel has been a consultant to our clinicians for more than 20 years.

Since 1970, JFCS has offered baskets that contain many traditional Seder items to Jewish families in need.

Passover begins this year on April 13th and Seder baskets again will be delivered in early April. We hope to be able to serve at least 200 families. A significant amount of the food comes from synagogues and grocery stores; however, we always need to supplement what we receive with donations. You can help by donating gift cards by mid-March. Cards can be mailed or dropped off at 4301 E. Fifth Street, Tucson, Arizona 85711. If you prefer, financial donations can be made online or by mailing a check .
