Our Jewish Values

Why We Serve

At JFS, we believe that the only thing that matters as much as what we do is the spirit in which we do it. Through our work, we live our Jewish values. They are the driving force behind our actions and the foundation of everything we do.

More profoundly than who we serve, our identity as a Jewish agency speaks to why we serve. Guided by the value of tikkun olam, repairing the world, we strive to be a vital resource for all of San Diego. We celebrate the diversity of our staff, supporters, clients, and volunteers and find unity in the strong community we are building together.
