(L to R) Co-Chairs Michael Savit & Jill Cohen, CEO Rimma Zelfand, Co-Chairs Shari & Robert CashmanLast Thursday night, April 12, JF&CS celebrated the Power of Community and honored Barry Shrage. It was a moving evening that demonstrated the impact of how, as a collective group, we as individuals, family members, synagogues, and corporations can make a difference in our community through philanthropy and volunteerism.

We are extremely grateful to event co-chairs Jill Cohen & Michael Savit and Shari & Robert Cashman, as well as the Benefit event committee for all their hard work. We would also like to thank Governor Charlie Baker for sharing such inspiring words of support for Barry and our agency.

The evening was a great success with more than $970,000 raised and over 550 guests in attendance. Funds raised ensure that JF&CS is able to continue to provide innovative and comprehensive programs that benefit the 14,000 individuals who come to us in need of help.

Thank you for helping us make an impact.
