gala2016-thank-you

On behalf of Jewish Family Service, thank you for sharing in the success of the 2016 Heart & Soul Gala!

Together, with more than 500 guests, we celebrated the our three Mitzvah Honorees — Benjamin Schulman, Claire & David Ellman, and our special partnership with U.S. Bank

Thanks to this vital support, Jewish Family Service will partner with thousands of San Diegans to improve their financial, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual health, and achieve life-changing goals.

Together, we are building a stronger, healthier, more resilient San Diego for everyone.
