JFS Ottawa celebrates its 40th anniversary this year! In 1979 a group of compassionate Jewish community members created an organization to speak for those who couldn’t speak for themselves, to advocate for their welfare and to ensure they continued to be a part of our Jewish community—one that was committed to their well-being.
Much has changed in Ottawa since then, but, at the same time, much has stayed the same.
What remains constant are JFS Ottawa’s mission to support and grow our diverse Jewish community and our responsibility as Jews to support each other.
This shared responsibility is a mitzvah, an obligation that resides in every one of us to contribute towards our Jewish community.
As we embark on our next 40 years, we need your help to connect isolated seniors to services, offer food security programs to those in need, assist Holocaust survivors in their homes, provide necessary day programs and support Jewish women fleeing domestic violence.
When you donate to JFS Ottawa, your mitzvah has a huge impact on the lives of people all around you.
YOU are the one person it takes to change this world! And you can do it today by donating to our Friends of JFS campaign!
