Testimonials

Even though we both work, between our student loans, daycare costs, and other expenses, it is such a relief to get this loan to replace our roof without using credit cards!

Danielle and Brian

My gas has been shut off, my water is due to be shut off soon. I’m behind on everything… This grant helped me so much! Thank you so much to the Jewish Assistance Fund!

Stephanie

My daughter left an abusive marriage, and she and her kids moved in with me. We’ve had a hard time making ends meet at the end of the month. The JFCS Squirrel Hill Food Pantry made it so I can feed my family and pay my bills. 

Meredith

Three of our kids were in college at the same time. They were each awarded scholarships that made it possible for them to focus on school without worrying about how to pay their next tuition bill. Thank you JSS!

Bill and Sarah

Sending our daughter to Israel on this program is such a great opportunity. Because of the Jewish Federation Isreal Scholarship Program and Passport to Isreal, we were able to afford it! Thank you so much!
