Jewish Family and Children’s Services of Northern New Jersey held its annual meeting at on June 22 to mark the end of the fiscal year. The meeting was at Temple Emanu-El in Closter.

The president of the board, Rachel Scheff, spoke, and Rabbi Jeremy Ruberg, in charge of lifelong learning at the shul, did as well. That evening, JFCS honored its loyal and dedicated group of volunteers, who are the lifeblood of many of the programs that JFCS operates.

The group also accepted a $25,000 grant from State Farm as part of the State Farm Neighborhood Assist program at the meeting. JFCS was part of a group of 200 national finalists for the grant. Because the diligent northern New Jersey community voted for JFCS, it finished in the top 25, making it eligible for the grant. JFCS is grateful both to everyone who voted for it and to State Farm for letting it have this wonderful opportunity.

The program concluded with presentations to outgoing board members — Barbara Bender, Suzette Diamond, Sue Ann Levin, Jeffrey Rotenberg, and Diane Seiden. The new board of directors was installed; it included four new board members — Ariel Bayewitz, Richard Feldman, Lindsay Forman, and David Singer.

JFCS is excited about the upcoming year as it continues to provide much-needed mental health and social services to anyone who needs them. To learn more about JFCS, go to www.jfcsnnj.org or call (201) 837-9090.
