what we do

As you can see, there are plenty of different things that we think make us Jewish. But there's one thing we all share — our desire to care for those
in need.

In fact, as a leading community-building force, Jewish Federations translates our shared Jewish values into social action on behalf of millions of people.
At the Jewish Federations, we foster and promote that desire by collectively raising and distributing more than $3 billion annually for social welfare, social services and educational needs; services that repair the world and build community locally and in 60 countries around the world.
Whether it's a child participating in Jewish day-school activities or a teenager traveling to Israel with Birthright or involved with Hillel, the Federations touch many lives.

If you swim at your nearby Jewish Community Center, or are ill and receiving kosher meals at home, if you have an elderly parent who is bused to activities, or know someone with disabilities living a life full of independence — the Federations helps make these things possible.
