A message from our director

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Jewish Federation of Central California, let me extend warm wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year 5783. I hope you and your families have remained safe during these very challenging times. Last month it was starting to feel like we had control over this devasting virus but with the new Delta variant we are back to masks and limited interactions.

Many thanks to all of you for your continued support this year despite the economic discomfort some of you faced. If you have not made your pledge yet it is not too late. You can complete a form online, call me or complete the form on the back of the Focus and mail it to me. You can also scan it and attach it in an email. 

It is very hard to plan our events right now and we would like to encourage everyone to refer to emails that are sent out every Friday and list weekly events. If you are not receiving them, please visit our website to sign up for them. We are hoping to start up our exercise class on Thursdays but at this time we have no set date.

We accept donations in honor of, or in remembrance. When we receive these donations, we notify the associates or family of those being honored or remembered.

You can make your donation by;

  • calling the JFCC office at 432-2162

  • sending an email

  • going online to our Donation page here.

Advertisements that are included in the Focus and on our website cost $100 annually. We encourage all of our community to support our advertisers.

If you have any questions or suggestions or if you need anything, please feel free to call me at 432-2162 or email me at fedfresno(at)sbcglobal(dot)net or using this contact form
