Callers who reach the Federation's main number after business hours will receive a recorded message with referral numbers for 24 hour emergency assistance. Aside from the JFS number, there is one for Cedars Sinai Medical Center in case of medical emergencies, and a number for urgent press inquiries. It's not 911 -- there's already one of those -- but it truly is the Other 911.
From 8:30 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Thursday, and until 3:30 pm on Friday, the JFS can be reached at (323) 761-8800. After hours, the JFS number is (800) 284-2530. The Federation's main switchboard is (323) 761-8000.
Now, for quick refrigerator magnet reference:
Jewish Federation 24-Hour Line:..(323) 761-8000
JFS Business Hours:....................... (323) 761-8800
JFS After-Hours:..............................(800) 284-2530
