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


On Community Day, join us in the Laikin Auditorium to wrap gifts together and enjoy family-fun activities with PJ Library. Drive by option available. Wrapped gifts may also be dropped off directly at JFS prior to Chanukah.
