Jewish Life & Learning

Federation strengthens and enhances our community by making experiences that build and bolster Jewish identity available to all ages. Our help assists families who could not otherwise afford child care or a Jewish day school education for their children, and brings books and music free of charge into the homes of local Jewish children. We support an array of programs that engage teens in Jewish identity and learning, Israel advocacy, Holocaust education and far more. Our young adults connect and learn through opportunities on their college campuses and in Israel. Federation’s advocacy arm, the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) engages the community in pro-Israel activities and advocates with Federal and State elected officials on issues of concern to our community and our people.
