ring individuals requiring
its contributions of matzot,
wine and monetary aid for
the holidays. Among those
being helped are 140
families (305 persons) re-
ferred by JFS, according to
Executive Director Sam
which assists immigrants to
the Detroit area, also re-
fers clients — 137 families
this year — for Mo'os

In addition, JFS has re-
ceived a $50,000 grant from

Half the grant was made
