Federation Is 100!
Our Mission: Today, Tomorrow & Always
Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ convenes and leads our community to ensure the continuity and strength of the Jewish People, to support a secure Jewish and democratic State of Israel, and to care for Jews in need locally and around the world.
Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest is made stronger by the participation of people of every age, ability, race, ethnicity, denomination, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, and religious affiliation. We are the backbone of the Jewish community for people of all perspectives across five New Jersey counties - Essex, Morris, Sussex, Union and parts of Somerset, in Israel and around the world.
Children receive free books from PJ Library that celebrate Jewish values each month.
People engaged in meaningful Center for Volunteerism service projects last year.
Clients are served by Federation’s local partner agencies each year.
Get your tickets now for our exciting Centennial Opening Event on Wednesday, October 11 – an inspiring and joyful evening of Fiddler on the Roof faves performed in Yiddish (with subtitles!) by Broadway’s award-winning cast. Don’t miss this celebration of tradition, connection, and community!
The Next Century Begins with Each of Us!
For the last 100 years, Federation has been caring for those in need, building community, and saving lives here in Greater MetroWest NJ, in Israel, and around the world. In honor of our centennial year, every new and increased gift to the 2024 UJA Annual Campaign will be matched 1:1 through our Match of the Century.
