Kudos will go to 9 community leaders at JFCS party

The Schultzes have provided support to the new Scott Street Senior Housing and Social Services Complex, a partnership project of JFCS and Mount Zion Health Systems. A wing of the 154-unit project will be named in memory of their daughter, Miriam Schultz Grunfeld, a community leader and JFCS board member who died in 1994.

Richards fled from Nazi Germany to San Francisco in 1933 and joined the Jewish Council, an organization that helped refugees adapt to their new lives in America. During her 27-year career with Koret of California, she volunteered with JFCS' Utility Workshop, which provides jobs and training for immigrants.
