Cherry Hill Mayor Shines Spotlight On Jewish Federation – Patch.com

Posted By on May 23, 2021

CHERRY HILL, NJ Cherry Hill Mayor Susan Shin Angulo is shining a spotlight on the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey as part of Jewish American Heritage Month in May.

"The Jewish Federation has been a pillar in our community for more than 70 years, and provides a wide array of often vital services to seniors, families, individuals with special needs and many others," Shin Angulo said in a message to the community.

"Our goal as the Federation is to bring the Jewish community together, promote Jewish life and learning, and connect to our culture and heritage to strengthen that bond," the Federation says on its website. "We work tirelessly for our community and serve vulnerable populations to help those in needlocally and around the world. We do our best to inspire the next generation to embrace Jewish life and continue that legacy."

It serves older adults, families and youth and adults with special needs, advocates for Israel and Jewish communities around the world, and fosters relationships within the Jewish community and between people of all faiths and cultures to help build a better world today.

It serves Camden, Burlington and Gloucester counties, and is located at 1301 Springdale Road in Cherry Hill.

Shin Angulo also noted that the National Museum of American Jewish History, located just over the river in Philadelphia, is also providing many free, virtual resources and events focused on the American Jewish experience all month long.

May is also Mental Health Awareness Month.

"We should also use this month to take a step back and talk open and honestly about mental health," Shin Angulo said. "So many people who struggle with mental health often carry the additional burden of feeling ashamed, making it even harder to seek out help. We all have a part to play in breaking the stigma. If you or someone you know is in need of mental health assistance, please consider reaching out to New Jersey Mental Health Cares at 1-866-202-Help (4357)."
