Jewish Federation of Central New Jersey is dedicated to building a vibrant, welcoming and connected Jewish community locally, nationally, in Israel and throughout the world.  Our commitment to 3 core values: acts of Gemilut Chasidim (loving-kindness), Avodah (volunteerism), and Torah (Jewish continuity)  inspires us to develop resources to repair the world.

How We Make a Difference

Miriam, a lovely seven-year old, brain-damaged child with big brown eyes and shoulder-length hair, never smiled.  It was not clear how much she actually understood; but in truth, the girl had little to smile about.  Learn more about a special needs program our funding made possible. 

If the experience of a talented seventh grader named Alkalah is any indication, SPACE, the School Performance and Community Empowerment Program for Ethiopian – Israeli teenagers at risk can really work wonders.  Learn more about our work with Israel’s most vulnerable people. 

Cyclone Nargid Disaster Relief

Funds are being collected for non-sectarian aid for the estimated several hundred thousand cyclone victims left without shelter and safe drinking water.   Please click here to donate now.
