Jacob Singer – Testimonial

Jacob Singer, a Family Life Education and Community Event Coordinator at JFS, credits Friendship Circle with the development that made him the person he is today. “My time with Friendship Circle taught me how to be a good person, to see the best in people and the importance of friendship. I have learned so many life lessons at the Friendship Circle and I am lucky they are a part of my life.” Jacob acknowledged that source of his enlightenment came from his experiences with others.“Every child, teen, and young adult, and coworker I was fortunate enough to meet through Friendship Circle have had such a positive impact on my life.” However, one particular individual represented Friendship Circle’s mission to Jacob on a very personal level. “I do have to single out one person, Yarden. He has been a great friend and mentor. The work he does for Friendship Circle and the community is truly inspiring.” I asked Jacob, If there was only one lesson you’ve learned from Friendship Circle that you could pass on to others, what would it be? “That anyone can inspire and amaze you, if you are patient enough to give them a chance.”
