Ongoing Events

Weekly Community Zoom

Open to the entire community and moderated by our clinical director, this group meets on zoom every Friday at 10am and allows participants to share their struggles and anxieties around living through a pandemic and its impact on our daily lives. Not a psychotherapy group, this is a space to chat, to laugh, to listen, to vent and to learn from those around you in a Zoom setting.

Thanksgiving Food Boxes 

Sunday, November 21

Each year, JFCS provides Thanksgiving meals for families in need. Partner organizations sponsor items for the food boxes — that brim with potatoes, a kosher turkey, pumpkin pie and more — that volunteers pack and deliver to community members. Click here to learn more. If you’d like to volunteer your time and energy for this event to make your and so many others’ holiday season special and fulfilling, contact Sammy Monk at


As we look to the 2021 holiday season, we know that joy can be hard to come by. JFCS has an antidote: We are continuing our 20-year tradition of brightening the holiday season for families and individuals of all ages experiencing hard times and for greater Portland’s Holocaust Survivors. Through Family-to-Family, JFCS adds a lot of joy to Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and other celebrations by providing gift cards to our clients so they can meet their own needs, most often by purchasing household items, clothing, and toys for children. Click here to learn more. If you would like to increase others’ joy, click here to donate.
