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.
We are 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.
