Biographical Note

Jewish Family Service was established in 1946 by a merger of the Jewish Social Service Association and the Jewish Family Welfare Society of Brooklyn. The Jewish Social Service Association was established in 1845 as the United Hebrew Charities encompassing the following organizations: the Hebrew Benevolent Fuel Association, the Ladies Benevolent Society of the Congregation of the Gates of Prayer, the Hebrew Relief Society and the Hebrew Benevolent and Orphan Society. In 1926 the organization was re-named the Jewish Social Services Association and in 1946 it merged with Jewish Family Services (JFS) and began operating under that name. In 1978, JFS merged once again, this time with the Jewish Board of Guardians, creating the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services (JBFCS).
