  • Scope and Contents

    The Jewish Family Service of Greater New Orleans records begin in 1952 and conclude in 2015. The subjects documented in this collection focus primarily on community outreach events and programs and the preservation of Jewish identity in New Orleans. Through programs including Lifeline, Immigrant Resettlement, Homemaker, Adoption Agency, Teen Life Counts, and various other support groups, JFS engages with both the local Jewish population as well as non-Jewish communities in the greater New Orleans area. The records also document the Jewish Family Service of Greater New Orleans relationship with the regional and national Jewish Federation.

    The documents consist of meeting minutes, financial documents, future planning packets, community outreach pamphlets, teaching materials, internal studies, and media clippings.
