Each year 350 children JAFCO serves in the community complete their holiday wish list for eight items, one for each night of Chanukah. These wish lists are then distributed throughout South Florida so people can make their wishes come true. Individuals, families, groups, schools, and Synagogues participate in making the holiday season a beautiful experience for these very precious children. If you would like to join the list of Chanukah Miracle Workers please fill out the form below.
We do want to make this Chanukah extra special for our children by making their wishes come true. For some, it is their first Chanukah celebration, for others it may be the only Chanukah that they spend at JAFCO and we want to make it special for them.
