What Does JFAR Do?

JFAR strengthens our Jewish community, cares for Jews in need, ensures a Jewish future in Arkansas, and supports global Jewry.

Here’s how:

Strengthening our Jewish Community

Care for Jews in Need

  • JFAR’s Family Services Committee provides financial assistance in response to requests from Jewish individuals and families in need. This assistance is supported by the newly established Glenn Lowitz Memorial CASE/Family Services Fund.
  • JFAR maintains a database of social services in Arkansas.
  • JFAR has launched a new initiative of caregiving and aging programs and services, including a new Social Work and Program Coordinator position, which is supported by a fund, established by Steve, Susan, and Trip Strauss, in memory of their parents Shirley and Sam Strauss.
  • JFAR sends special emergency funds to help victims of local, national, and international disasters and crises.
