Holocaust survivors tend to have more dental needs than other people of the same age. To assist local Holocaust survivors in need of dental treatment, JFS recently launched a new program called, “Dental Assistance for Survivors of the Holocaust.” This new program recruits dentists who provide pro bono dental treatments to Holocaust survivors that qualify financially for the service, such as Alex Varnai whose story is described in this Jewish Journal article.
As part of the August Maccabi games, Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services was proud to participate in the JCC Cares community service projects. Young athletes sorted and packaged toiletries at JFS’ Jacobson Food Pantry, which was an excellent opportunity to teach children about the Jewish idea of tikkun olam.
