Abner and Roslyn Goldstine truly have hearts of gold.
Realizing that the services available to Holocaust survivors living below the poverty line was not adequate to provide for their basic needs, the couple established the Abner D. and Roslyn Goldstine Fund for Holocaust Survivors through the nonprofit organization, Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles (JFS) in 2007. The impact of the fund is impressive and continues to grow - about 267 Holocaust survivors have received home care or financial emergency assistance.

It enables them to live the rest of their lives with dignity and comfort.View Full Article
