Dancing with our Stars hosted by Jerry Springer

A Gala to Benefit Jewish Family Service

Professionally Choreographed Dance Competition  -   Dinner 


 Saturday, November 3, 2018      Jack Cincinnati Casino private ballroom

Get ready for the 3rd biennial Jewish Family Service Dancing with our Stars gala - an exciting dance competition (along with schmoozing between old and new friends).


A star-studded cast of local "celebrity dancers", who are each paired with a professional dancer, will compete to win the most votes. $1 donation = 1 vote. And since each vote is a generous contribution to Jewish Family Service, the ultimate winners are the people in our community whose lives are strengthened in times of need.

And here is a highlight video from our Inaugural Event in 2014:

Since 1943, Jewish Family Service has played a vital role in responding to the constantly changing challenges and stresses of everyday life experienced by individuals and families in Greater Cincinnati.


Jewish Family Service, a 501(c)3 non-profit agency, strengthens lives of people in times of need by providing social services that guide them along their road to stability, self-reliance, and personal growth. Your support helps us promote stability and wellness to families experiencing hunger and mental illness; mentor youth toward reaching their highest potential in school and life; and assist older adults with the help they need to manage their independence and live the best quality life possible. 


This is accomplished through Aging and Caregiver Services, Care Management, Emergency Financial Support, Bigs & Littles Youth Mentoring, and the Jewish Family Service Heldman Family Food Pantry at our Barbash Family Vital Support Center.
