Join Jewish Family Services for our community-wide celebration of mensches—men and women who our partner institutions nominated for their selflessness, passion, and hard work in the community.
Due to the Coronavirus public health crisis and the necessary mandate to social distance for the unforeseeable future, we are re-imagining our upcoming Mensches & Mimosas event on May 17th. We will gather in person later in the year and on May 17th, we will go virtual!
We asked our partner institutions to nominate an honoree mensch– men and women who selflessly give their time, their passions, and their hard work to our community agencies and synagogues – and we will celebrate these 24 Honorable Menschen on May 17th.
JFS will also honor Judy Avner with the Distinguished Service Award
for her years of outstanding leadership at JFS and in the community.
Sponsorship opportunities, honorary committee and tickets can be purchased online here.
