(Courtesy of JFCS) Over 200 people gathered on Sunday, November 13 for the annual celebration event of Jewish Family and Children’s Services of Northern New Jersey (JFCS), which honored the esteemed Goodman Family (Lawrence, z”l and Rosalyn Goodman, David and Hope Goodman, Caryn Goodman and Mitchell Caplan, Mindy and Jason Sickle). Celebration co-chairs Arline Herman and Paula Shaiman highlighted, through speeches and an emotional video, the Goodman family’s extraordinary five-decade commitment to giving back to the JFCS community.

Guests had a tremendous time at Alpine Country Club in Demarest, New Jersey, as they enjoyed the company and the food by Foremost Caterers. It was a night to remember for all who attended, with both new and familiar faces celebrating JFCS’s noble mission of empowering people and transforming their lives.

Thanks to loyal donors and dedicated friends, JFCS is close to its goal, ensuring that it can continue to provide vital services to all who need them. Its Four Pillars of Support—Mental Health Services, Older Adult Services, Food Insecurity Services, and Basic Needs Assistance—are how JFCS has become a safety net for the Northern New Jersey community, and it is because of the community’s generous donations that they are able to continue to do so.

JFCS is a social services agency that serves Bergen, Passaic and Hudson Counties. It is dedicated to ensuring the well-being of everyone who needs its help. No matter the personal situation, JFCS is there, ready to lend a hand.
