We re-imagined our inaugural Mensches & Mimosas event and went virtual!

We asked our partner institutions and we celebrated 24 Honorable Menschen – men and women who selflessly give their time, their passions, and their hard work to our community agencies and synagogues.

JFS also honored Judy Avner with the Distinguished Service Award
for her years of outstanding leadership at JFS and in the community.
