Adopt-a-Family is an annual community-wide program that helps Jewish households in the Indianapolis area during the Chanukah holiday.

Due to COVID-19, participation in Community Day will include a drive-by gift drop off option, or families are welcome to join us in wrapping gifts together in the Domont Auditorium. Wrapped gifts may also be dropped off directly at JFS prior to Community Day. 

Need some support this Chanukah? JFS is here to help! Contact Julie Sondhelm at (317) 536-1476 or

Read the Jewish Values Packet to continue your conversations at home with family about Adopt-a-Family.
