A message from our director

I hope you and your families have a wonderful Pesach and meaningful Seder. This has been such a challenging year and our community has really stepped up to the plate and been there for each other. Whether it was donating to help feed fire victims, making masks or checking in on each other, everyone was very eager to help. Together we were able to meet the needs of our community; with your support we will be able to continue to help this coming year. While we still cannot meet in person it is wonderful to see everyone on Zoom. 

We will not be having a formal Super Sunday this year but our 2021 Campaign has begun. The Friday emails that I send out have a link to make your pledge. If you are not receiving these emails please let me know and I will add you to the list. Thanks to everyone who has made a pledge and I encourage those who have not to please consider one. 

You can also make your pledge by;

  • calling the JFCC office at 432-2162

  • sending your pledge to JFCC (use form)

  • sending an email

  • going online to our Donation page here.

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. 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
