As an integral part of the Jewish Federation of Durham-Chapel Hill, JFS is dedicated to promoting the well-being of all those within the community who need support and service. JFS delivers high-quality, professional social services for adults and families through all stages of life. JFS strives to improve quality of life by providing affordable services and educational workshops that help foster the Jewish tradition of empowering people to care for themselves and each other.
