Hag Sameach Shopping Event

We are excited for our annual NextGen shopping trip for the JFCS Hag Sameach program. Hag Sameach (Hebrew for “happy holidays”) provides gifts and ritual items for individuals and families to have a joyous holiday season. Meet us at Target Knollwood where JFCS will give each person an additional $10 per individual or $20 per couple to spend on in-kind donations for Hag Sameach to double the impact. We will meet inside Target at Customer Services. Sign up here

JFCS NextGen exists to inspire the next generation to connect with one another and the Jewish community through tikkun olam (repair of the world). It serves Jewish young adults ages 21-36 who are living in the Twin Cities. It provides participants with social engagements and programs, as well as volunteering and leadership opportunities. NextGen operates through a board of volunteers who serve as ambassadors of JFCS and help plan and implement NextGen events throughout the year.
