THE JEWISH Family Services, a constituent agency of the Associated Jewish Charities, offers a wide variety of help to its clients in the Baltimore Jewish community.None of its services is more welcome than the Mitzvah Mobility program, in which volunteers provide door-to-door transportation for those who are unable to get around on their own.Carol Sandler, director of volunteer services for JFS, says that Mitzvah means ''good deed'' but that its translation is more than that. ''It is a good deed, a fulfillment of an obligation to God and to man.''Volunteer drivers take clients to medical appointments, to shop and to other errands and wait with them.

For Jewish and interfaith families, December has long come with a dilemma: how to distinguish celebration of the historically modest Jewish festival of lights from the overwhelming extravaganza that Christmas has become. This year, it's the dilemma of Dec. 25. Christmas and the first night of Hanukkah fall on the same day. Hanukkah, which celebrates the rededication of the Temple of Jerusalem and the flask of oil that miraculously lit its menorah for eight nights, is a minor Jewish holiday.
