SAJSS’ top priority is fighting isolation of Jewish seniors by creating and fostering connections between them and the broader Jewish community. In 2016/2017, SAJSS awarded almost $150,000 in grants to organizations, including San Antonio’s four largest Jewish congregations, for programs they offer to benefit Jewish seniors.

* Because SAJSS’s partnership grants are capped at 50% of each program’s expenses, this means that our partners also commit at least this much to help keep Jewish seniors connected to the broader Jewish community.


For questions about the Grant & Partnership program, please see our guidelines and FAQ sheet, or call our office at (210) 616-4811.


These programs have tremendously enriched my life. They get me out of my house and help me to forget about any pain I may be in. I’ve also made so many great friends, and you can never have too many friends!
