Live a Meaningful Jewish Life

In your own way

Our Roots Run Deep

Greater MetroWest NJ has a long tradition of being a dynamic Jewish community, tracing back to the late 1800s when Jewish immigrants settled in the city of Newark.

Since then, we have expanded, moving west and south, building synagogues, schools, community centers, and camps. Starting businesses. Raising families and making friends.

And, of course, Federation has been there over that time, serving as the hub that connects us all.

Tap into that community, your community, and live a meaningful Jewish life in the way that means something to you.

Bit of Torah 8/4/21

Parshat Re’eh rests on the ancient practice of the sabbatical year, a year designed to offer a fresh start to society at large. In this week’s Bit of Torah, Rabbi Max Edwards of Temple B’nai Abraham in Livingston teaches us that breaking cycles of inequality and injustice, creating a fresh start, begins with seeing what is directly in front of us. #IamGMW
