Jewish Family Services (JFS) of Greenwich celebrated its 30th anniversary on Wednesday, Sept. 25th. In honor of this milestone, JFS purchased a Town Bench with a plaque reading: “Jewish Family Services of Greenwich Celebrating 30 Years of Community Service 1983-2013.” A proclamation was given to JFS by First Selectman Peter Tesei. Attending the ceremony were individuals who benefit from JFS services, participants of The Greenwich Senior Center, agents from various town agencies, JFS board members and community residents. Pam Liflander, JFS board president, and rabbis from Chabad of Greenwich, Congregation Shir Ami and Greenwich Reform Synagogue all spoke on JFS’s behalf.  The bench is located in front of The Greenwich Senior Center and is  representative of the 1,800 persons annually assisted by JFS, 75 percent of whom are over the age of 60.
