JFCS Board of Directors 2024

Tzedakah, in the context of nonprofits, refers to the concept of charitable giving and acts of righteousness within our Jewish tradition. It is often understood as an obligation and a fundamental principle of Jewish ethics to help those in need. Our Board Members at JFCS of Monmouth County go beyond philanthropy and emphasizes the importance of promoting justice, equality, and improving the overall well-being of our community. We encourage individuals to give not only their financial resources but also their time, skills, and efforts to help make a positive impact on society.
