Women's Philanthropy

A Vision for the Future

Women’s Philanthropy of Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ engages Jewish women through dynamic programs that benefit their lives and others in Greater MetroWest, Israel and overseas. Guided by the principles of tzedakah (righteousness), Klal Yisrael (Jewish Peoplehood), and tikkun olam (repairing the world), WP’s support of the UJA Annual Campaign enables our vision to become reality. more

Women's Campaign

When you give a gift in your own name, you demonstrate the importance of tzedakah to you. You take your place in the long line of women who have carried on this fundamental Jewish tradition, and you inspire others to translate their Jewish caring into giving that makes a difference.
