Our Commitment to the Community
During the Coronavirus Outbreak

Schoke Jewish Family Service remains committed to ensuring that the vulnerable in our community are being cared for and are safe. We encourage you to reach out to us if you or someone you know needs assistance during these trying times. Our office is not open to the public, but and a member of our staff will be available to assist you. In addition, you may reach out to us for assistance through copingwithcovid19@ctjfs.org or by calling 203-921-4161.

Our Freedberg Family Kosher Food Pantry, Hirsch Home Delivered Kosher Meal Program, Case Management and Emergency Assistance Services, and Hebrew Free Loan program are ready to assist families in need. In addition, we are providing behavioral health counseling through an online platform.

The needs of our community will expand in the months ahead. To meet these needs, we have established Coping with Coronavirus, a dedicated fund that will help ensure that families facing financial distress, food insecurity, unemployment, homelessness, or other losses as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak will receive support in their moment of greatest need.

To join us in supporting these efforts, please give to our Coping with Coronavirus Emergency Fund.

Stay safe and healthy,

Beverly A. Stein, President
