Let’s get together to honor our community champions! Wherever you watch, be sure to add comments to cheer on you mensch(es).
Here's how to watch:

- We encourage you to host a watch party! Invite your friends, order take out, pop some popcorn, pour a mimosa a or a mocktail and tune in.
- We also suggest that you get help from a “techy” in your life so you can “cast” from your smart phone, tablet or computer to your TV.
- The celebration video will be available on both of these platforms forever! Feel free to watch when you can.
What is Mensches & Mimosas?
Out 4th annual virtual event recognizes community volunteers and professionals – Mensches – and their selfless work for JFS and our fabulous partner agencies. Kicking off the virtual celebration, Marvin A. Freedman will be presented with the Anschel Weiss Community Builders Award for his lifetime of serving humanity with humility.
The Mensches & Mimosas celebration is the pinnacle moment for JFS as it is the opportunity to showcase our critical work throughout the community and raise the necessary funds to sustain our free programs and services.
Who is being recognized?
We will honor 31 of our region’s most selfless and dedicated volunteers. HERE is a link to the list in our invitation.
Why is the event virtual?
Great question! The past few years have inspired and challenged us. We have seen increasing needs throughout our community and are responding with critical human and mental health services. The true cost of our work is expensive and rapidly rising. We are keeping the event virtual to prioritize our focus on community needs to direct money raised to underwrite free services offered by JFS.
HERE is a link to a snapshot of our services, along with information on the JFS planned giving program.
