About Us

The mission of Charleston Jewish Family Services is to provide financial and emotional support and assistance to those in need of help in our community. CJFS is guided by the fundamental Jewish values of tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (repair of the world). CJFS is an affiliate of the Charleston Jewish Federation and grew from Nat Shulman’s original vision of Charleston Jewish Social Services.

As a member of the Network of Jewish Human Service Agencies, Charleston Jewish Family Services provides vital services to clients of all ages, faiths, and economic backgrounds. NJHSA is a membership association of service agencies throughout the U.S. and Canada.
