JFCS of Northern New Jersey to Hold Annual Celebration

(Courtesy of Jewish Family and Children’s Services of Northern NJ) Jewish Family and Children’s Services of Northern New Jersey (JFCS) in Wayne, New Jersey has announced that it will still hold its annual celebration at the Edgewood Country Club in River Vale, New Jersey on Sunday, Nov. 5.

The JFCS celebration comes at a difficult time. The community is sad and worried, but JFCS understands that the community is stronger together. As JFCS gathers to celebrate its honorees Rachel Scheff and ShopRite of Englewood, Paramus, and Rochelle Park, it will also display and reflect the unity and resolve of the northern New Jersey Jewish community. The proceeds from the JFCS event will go toward strengthening the new and existing social and mental health services that JFCS provides to Holocaust survivors, Israeli families, and the wider Jewish community in northern New Jersey.

Scheff joined the JFCS board in 2012 and quickly rose through the ranks by showing herself to be a capable and dynamic leader. For three years aspPresident, Scheff’s perseverance, intelligence, compassion, easygoing nature, and strength were guiding lights that launched JFCS to new heights of providing social and mental health services to the community.

ShopRite of Englewood, Paramus, and Rochelle Park is owned and operated by Glass Gardens Inc. Started by brothers Ben and Abe Glass and now run by their sons Irv and Terry, along with the third generation of ownership, Karen Holbrook, Dan Glass and Andrew Kent, ShopRite is a staple in the community that can be relied upon to support the neediest in local neighborhoods.

The community is encouraged to join JFCS on Nov. 5 as it stands strong together, and thanks Scheff and ShopRite for their continued support of the JFCS mission of empowering people and transforming lives.
