We are so very happy to announce that after two years, the Frisch Family Holocaust Memorial Gallery is again open to the public for in-person visits. Come by and see our new exhibit.


Jewish Family & Community Services is honored to again partner with Yad Vashem, The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, to bring ART IN THE HOLOCAUST to the Frisch Family Holocaust Memorial Gallery. This exhibition, containing digital images of works in the Yad Vashem Collection and stories of the artists who created them, provides a glimpse into art created during the Holocaust in ghettos, camps, forests, and while in hiding. The artworks reflect the tension between the artists’ need to document the terrible events they endured and their desire to break free through art, and escape into the realms of beauty, imagination, and faith.

The exhibition stands as testimony to the strength of the human spirit that refuses to surrender and our innate need to create, even during times of trauma and destruction.
While visiting the gallery you will also have an opportunity to view the work of the Mayo Clinic Lyndra P. Daniel Center for Humanities in Medicine program as it intersected with the Holocaust Memories project at JFCS during this time of uncertainty and change. This collaborative installation uses words and art to shine a light on the power of the humanities to heal in times of trauma.

The gallery is open to the public Mon-Fri 8:30am-5:00pm


Join us in a spacious and COVID-conscious setting surrounded by vintage airplanes, cars, and World War II memorabilia!

April is Mental Health Awareness Month ...

So we thought it would be a good time to remind everyone that you don't need to be a referred client to access the counseling services we offer. Our therapists are here to work with you to overcome any mental health challenges you are experiencing. All inquiries are strictly confidential and the entrance and exit to our counseling services is separate from those of our main offices.

Just some of the issues you don't have to deal with on your own: Life transitions, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, isolation, gender identity, coping with illness, issues related to trauma, abuse, rape or neglect.

We also offer family, parenting, and couples counseling.
Our monthly group brings in experts to educate, then together we break it down.


Attend in person at the Chartrand Tolerance Education Center at JFCS, 8540 Baycenter Rd, or virtually via Zoom.

Incorporating Jewish values and cognitive behavioral methods to diminish stress and amplify happiness. Join Rabbi Nadia Siritsky as we discuss all things stress and learn valuable practices and techniques based in Jewish tradition. Rabbi Nadia Siritsky, BCC, RSW is a Reform rabbi and psychotherapist who has served several synagogues, most recently Temple Bet Yam in St. Augustine, Florida. She has extensive experience working in several capacities including community-based counseling, hospice and palliative care, community organizing, healthcare leadership and administration and education. Her doctoral research is a study on compassion fatigue and burnout for healthcare workers.
