JFCS Kicks Off Project of Unity at Special Aviva Event

SCOOP

SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY JAN 5, 2019

In partnership with Aviva and The Jewish Federation, JFCS kicked off its new Project of Unity program on the first day of Hanukkah, bringing together families and children of all faiths to promote unity in the community. Clients from JFCS’s Healthy Families/Healthy Children program joined Aviva residents to learn about Hanukkah and the principles of giving back and supporting those in need, which are an integral part of the Jewish faith. Participants were introduced to stories, music and traditions surrounding the Jewish faith and Hanukkah. Children also created

special holiday cards, which they then gave to Aviva residents, and shared a special meal of Latkes and other traditional Jewish foods.  

“The inspiration for the Project of Unity is the belief that differences enrich our interactions and make us stronger,” said Heidi Brown, JFCS President/CEO. “We are excited to join together as one harmonious community and dedicate the Project of Unity to Steve Seidensticker. His passion for doing good endures through his beautiful legacy and the Project of Unity is a testament to his vision.”
