Federations

Based on the Jewish traditions of tzedakah (righteous behavior) and communal responsibility, the federations are volunteer-based, nonprofit organizations that raise funds from Jewish individuals to support social services, culture and education. As umbrella agencies, the federations allocate dollars in their geographic areas, Israel and elsewhere around the world. Federations play an important role in community planning and leadership development. In addition, federation endowment funds help to ensure the financial security of the Jewish community.
