In the midst of a rapidly evolving COVID19 situation within the Miami Valley and across the United States, we as an organization are taking all of the steps outlined by the State of Ohio and the Montgomery County Department of Health in order to both prevent the community spread of the virus and support containment efforts.

It is important that we move forward quickly and purposefully in order to be proactive. We feel that Pickuach Nefesh, a principle in Jewish law that covets the preservation of human life, guides our current decisions as it is imperative to protect our beloved community.

*UPDATE AS OF MARCH 13, 5:30PM: In order to ensure we are doing everything possible to protect our children and staff’s health, and fulfill our responsibilities to slow the spread of COVID-19, it has become necessary for us to make the difficult decision to close our preschool, effective end of business on Tuesday, March 17. We anticipate reopening on Monday, April 6.*

Our agency offices will remain open, however we will not have any events or public gatherings.

We are committed to keeping you updated about this rapidly changing situation. We are confident that taking these measures now will help prevent serious illness for our friends, family, and community.

Agency Services

Jewish Family Services
During this difficult time, JFS will continue to offer its services – case management (which includes our transportation services) and information and referral. We have clients with ongoing needs. We anticipate that there will also be those with newly identified needs as we all grapple with the implications of the necessary steps to mitigate our community’s spread of COVID-19.  We are here to connect members in our community to vital resources over the short and long term. We want to maintain connection and mitigate the feelings of grief, fear, anxiety, sadness and isolation. How we deliver our services may change, focusing more on phone calls than face-to-face visits, but will be here and will serve our community as long as we have the staff to do so. We will continue to update the community as the situation evolves and our services change.

Jewish Community Center
In order to ensure we are doing everything possible to protect our children and staff’s health, and fulfill our responsibilities to slow the spread of COVID-19, it has become necessary for us to make the difficult decision to close our preschool, effective end of business on Tuesday, March 17. We anticipate reopening on Monday, April 6.
