Live Your Life with Jewish Meaning

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 and enhance your life with Jewish experiences that are meaningful to you.

In this week’s Bit of Torah, Rabbi Alexandra Klein of Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel in South Orange teaches us that while the Israelites’ 40 years of wandering in the wilderness might not have been necessary for travel time, those years were needed in order to establish faith in God, in one another, and in Torah. #JewishLearning #Torah #IamGMW
