Holocaust Survivor Assistance Program

Claims Conference

Social services for Jewish Nazi victims have been supported by a grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany.

Holocaust Survivor Assistance Program helps provide for the needs of Holocaust Survivors through personalized case management and care coordination. Our staff assists with linkages to socialization programs, transportation services and other vital services necessary to maintain a safe home environment. JFS has assisted hundreds of elderly Survivors in our community with Holocaust reparations and obtaining subsidized home health care, cleaning services and emergency grants through Claims Conference Funds.

Additional emergency funding provided by KAVOD SHEF in partnership with Seed the Dream Foundation.

The JFS Holocaust Survivor Assistance Program receives financing from the Claims Conference (The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany). Additional funding is provided through the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Holocaust Survivor Emergency Assistance Fund.


"I would like to recognize Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services for providing my mother, Esther, a wonderful support structure for her years in Delray Beach Florida, and especially in her later years of dire need.

Our family is forever indebted to the services, care, follow up and down to earth care provided by the program and staff, my mother undoubtedly benefitted from all. During my eulogy recognizing my mother, I shared with those in attendance that my mother was able to live extended years due to what was provided for her through the Holocaust Survivor Assistance Program. Without the support of a full time live in aide and the delicious weekly Meals on Wheels, my mother wouldn’t have lived until 93, let alone lived happily and with honor.

Please extend my words of thank you (as well as from our family) to all that make this program so useful for those in need. It was truly a blessing to have had my mother live well beyond her years, and healthy until almost the very end."
