How did you spend your summer?

Meet Tate. Tate is our youngest volunteer. He chose to spend his summer at JFS, with Blanche and the other members of the Balboa Avenue Older Adult Center (BAOAC). I mean, look at this kid! He is the perfect example of giving selflessly. I am so thankful for Tate and his family, who allowed him to spend so much time with us. Tate starts school again soon, but he has already committed to returning on his breaks. And the older adults couldn’t be happier. 

Want to get your kids involved in tikkun olam

I encourage you to take a look at our Girls Give Back and Hand Up Teen Leadership programs, which offer hands on opportunities for kids to harness their inner strengths and take action to repair our world. 

If you're looking to make a difference, give me a holler, and we can plan some ways to help our community together.

I look forward to your call!

High Holy Day food donation barrelsSummer Food Boost!
School’s out, but hunger never stops! Help keep our food pantry stocked by leading a food drive this summer! During the summer months the food supply at local food pantries starts to dwindle, and we need your support to keep families fed this summer. We can supply you with bins and pick up. Highly desired items include: canned tuna, peanut butter, dried beans, oatmeal, rice, pasta, canned vegetables and soups, toiletries, and diapers. Contact Brendan Rosen at or (858) 637-3243 to get started today!
