Celebrating a new organization


There was a huppah, ketubbah, and the hora. But, this wasn’t your typical wedding – this was a merger of two historic community social service organizations: Jewish Family Service of Rhode Island and Jewish Seniors Agency of Rhode Island. 

Community members, elected officials and staff of many Jewish agencies throughout Rhode Island, came together to celebrate the entity that is now Jewish Collaborative Services. 

Several community members were honored for the good work that has been done. There was excitement in the room and lots of conversation among guests about the work that will be accomplished. Whether it is assisting those in need and connecting them to the resources to enhance their lives or the Kosher senior meal site, JCS will continue the work of the two organizations from a Providence headquarters on North Main Street as well as a West Bay campus in Warwick.
