Bags can be delivered any time before Nov. 24! Our delivery window will be Wednesday 11/17 through Wednesday 11/24, so people will have them before the holiday.

Join the JFCS Holocaust Center Conversation Circle!

Applications open through Dec 6

Program meets online weekly in Jan 2022

High school students nationwide can now apply for our Holocaust Center’s Conversation Circle. This is a unique opportunity to participate in small-group discussions with a Holocaust survivor and explore ways to stand up to hate today. Through conversations, with a Holocaust survivor, learn about the impact of having lived through genocide and what it means to incorporate this life experience into a broader sense of self. High school students from the Bay Area and beyond are invited to apply.

Apply here! Questions? Email holocaustcenter@jfcs.org.
