(Courtesy of JFCS) On June 21, Jewish Family and Children’s Services of Northern NJ (JFCS) held its annual meeting at Temple Emanu-El in Closter to mark the end of the 2022-2023 fiscal year.

The meeting opened with remarks from the outgoing President of the Board of Directors Rachel Scheff, followed by the uplifting and inspirational words of Rabbi Joel Pitkowsky from Congregation Beth Shalom. Rabbi Pitkowsky is the son of this year’s JFCS volunteers of the year, Judi and Jerry Pitkowsky. The Pitkowskys were honored for their years of dedication and service to JFCS, particularly for delivering Kosher Meals on Wheels since 2007. The couple is as in sync as people come, sharing warm and infectious smiles around anyone who interacts with them. The Pitkowskys are a special pair, and JFCS is honored to have been able to honor them.

The program concluded with a dedication to the outgoing Board members—Andrew Kent, David Goodman, Debbie Harris and Beth Nadel—and a heartwarming thank you to Rachel Scheff who ended her term as Board President after three exemplary years of service. The Board of Directors for the 2023-2024 year was installed, which included JFCS’s new Board President, Sima Kern, and their newest Board member, Daniel Miller.

JFCS looks forward to the upcoming year as it continues to have a positive impact on those in the community who need social and mental health services. To learn more about JFCS visit www.jfcsnnj.org or call 201-837-9090.
