SAJFS in the media


“The roots of the commandment to charity are deep. They go to the essential call on all of us to help sustain life, to heal the world (Tikkun olam), and to remember that we were once ourselves strangers in a strange land. Tzedakah is justice itself. As the world changes, so too must our response to the profound commandment of charity.”  —“Tzedakah in a Global Community” Jeffrey D. Sachs


At Spokane Area Jewish Family Services, we bring life to others.   Through our food bank, our emergency assistance program, and our crisis management services, we offer hope and support to families and individuals in our Spokane community during some of the most difficult moments in their lives.  We ensure the welfare of our senior clients through individual home visits, consultations on care or living transitions, transportation to doctors or errands, and enjoyable social events such as our monthly luncheons.

We enhance the cultural life of our community through our exciting Jewish Cultural Film Festival, and through The PJ Library®, a program which offers free Jewish books and music to children ages eight and under.

Your generous gift to SAJFS serves to bring something to others in life, and has the immortal value of ensuring that basic human needs are met with dignity.    We invite you to designate your support to our general fund, to the PJ Library program, or to the Deborah Ann Press Senior Program Fund.  Any gift can be made in honor or in memory of someone you love, and we will send the appropriate acknowledgement.  We are able to accept your contributions online. Please take a few minutes to explore information about all of our programs and services by clicking through the tabs on the left side of this page.
