Matanot Lev

Matanot Lev brings joy to families in need during the Hanukkah holiday season. We invite them to share their Hanukkah wish lists with Schoke JFS and we pass along these wishes to the community.

You can help to make holiday wishes come true by purchasing gifts for our clients. This year, gifts can be purchased through this wish list.

Gifts purchased through our GiveSmart site will be shipped directly to our clients, so they can wrap the gifts for their own family members. Donors must create a GiveSmart account to purchase gifts.

Gifts must be purchased by Thursday, December 7, 2023, and through this new system we can guarantee that the gifts will be received with dignity to participating families.

Thank you for your kindness.

"I didn’t know how I was going to do Hanukkah this year and this helps so much."
