Welcome to our new website!

Dear Federation Friends, On behalf of our Federation, I am proud to announce the launching of our new website at www.JewishFed.org. In helping to lead the revitalization of our Jewish community, one of our goals is to remove barriers to Jewish engagement. With our dedicated volunteers, staff and partners, this site functions as an online kehilla, a nucleus of Jewish life, making it easier for you to join our community, find ways to participate, take action and make an impact. Throughout this site, you'll get a first-hand experience on how we catalyze innovative programs and services, foster leadership, construct funding strategies and provide vital resources for individuals, families and community needs locally, in Israel and world-wide. Guided by a century of Jewish values, the Jewish Community Federation and its Endowment Fund work daily to harness the power of communal giving and infuse philanthropy with meaning. It's how we continue to strengthen and build our community, ensuring the continuity of the Jewish people.

JewishFed.org is the new face of our Federation

Here are some of the site's great new features:
