Jewish Family Services (JFS) of Greenwich recently celebrated its 30th anniversary by offering residents a seat on its gift to Greenwich — a town bench with a plaque that reads,  “Jewish Family Services of Greenwich Celebrating 30 Years of Community Service 1983-2013.”

To celebrate this gift and the organization’s milestone, a ceremony was held Sept. 25 during which First Selectman Peter Tesei gave a proclamation formally dedicateing the bench.

Individuals who benefit from JFS services, participants of the Greenwich Senior Center, agents from various town agencies, as well as, JFS board members and community residents were present. Pam Liflander, JFS board president, and Rabbis from Chabad of Greenwich, Congregation Shir Ami and Greenwich Reform Synagogue all spoke on JFS’s behalf.

The town bench is placed in front of the Greenwich Senior Center and is representative of the 1800 persons annually assisted by JFS, 75% of whom are over the age of 60.
