Holocaust Survivor Tile Quilt art tribute at Cafe Europa
Jewish Family Service (JFS) of the Desert, in collaboration with the Tolerance Education Center and Old Town Artisan Studio, presented Café Europa’s Holocaust Survivor Tile Quilt Art Tribute at the Tolerance Education Center on March 21. The event featured the unveiling of art created by local Holocaust survivors, who will be forever honored and remembered.
For over 35 years, JFS of the Desert has provided services throughout the Coachella Valley to those in need, regardless of religion, age, income, ethnicity, disability, national origin or orientation. JFS services and programs are made possible through the financial support of Jewish Federation of the Desert, Desert Healthcare District, Kaiser Permanente, United Way of the Desert and other organizations, as well as through the generous support of donors.
Most of the nearly 2,500 men, women and children JFS serves are from low-income households. They rely on JFS for low-cost mental health counseling, crisis intervention and food support. JFS provides isolated, homebound seniors with care management, transportation and enrichment activities, and offers counseling in local elementary schools. It is also the largest provider of social services to the local Jewish community.
