Who We Are • What We Do

Federation is the heart and soul of our Jewish community – meeting the depth and breadth of philanthropic and humanitarian needs

100 years of building an inclusive community and strengthening Jewish identity.

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.

As the largest Jewish philanthropy in New Jersey, Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest encompasses Essex, Morris, Sussex, Union, and parts of Somerset County.

Serving as the backbone of the Jewish community, we are uniquely positioned to connect the work of our 27 local and overseas partner agencies.

What we accomplish together, with the help of people like you, is far greater than what one organization or person can achieve alone.
