The Jewish Community Alliance facility is now open to the public. Because we are operating programs that serve young children who cannot yet be vaccinated, we ask that you consider wearing a mask when visiting our building. The KJFS food pantry will remain closed as we restructure. Over the next few months, we will continue to offer both in-person and virtual activities to meet your needs and keep you engaged and connected. Please follow us on social media, check back here often, and sign up for our emails to stay up to date!
