All in the Hartford family: Celebrating JFS at 100

Gene and Anja Rosenberg and Mary and Gideon Rutenberg

More than 400 people – including Governor Dan Malloy and U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal gathered together to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Jewish Family Services of Greater Hartford at a gala event held on Sunday, June 10 at Beth El Temple in West Hartford. “We would not be the state we are if it were not for this organization,” said Malloy in remarks, noting that four state departments – Children & Families, Social Services, Labor and Health – all have clients served by JFS. The evening’s honorees included JFS Executive Director Anne M. Danaher, who was thanked for 25 years of service, as well as four couples who were noted for their volunteer service and long-standing support of the agency: Anja and Gene Rosenberg of Simsbury, Mary and Gideon Rutenberg of Bloomfield, Judy and David Rosenthal of Hartford, and Marilyn and Harold Rothstein of West Hartford.
