Jewish Family Service hopes that everyone had a happy New Year and meaningful High Holy Days!
Over the past couple weeks, we helped isolated members of our community celebrate the High Holy Days. The shofar sounded, apples were dipped into honey, and heartfelt prayers were recited at more than 30 long-term care facilities, assisted living centers, retirement communities, mental health centers, and correctional institutions in metro Denver and Boulder.
Other volunteers from the community assisted the para-chaplains at these services and many of them brought their children, which added cheer to the senior residents. Thank you to everyone who participated and brought meaning to the holidays for many in our community who wouldn't otherwise celebrate.
As a reminder, our offices will be closed Monday, October 1 and Tuesday, October 2 for Sukkot.
