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.

Parashat Korach tells the story of the rebellion of Korach and his followers against the leadership of Moses. In this week’s Bit of Torah, Rabbi Steven Stern of Temple Beth O’r Beth Torah of Clark, NJ explains the tradition’s perspective on the nature of disagreement, and its applicability to the divisiveness of our day. #IamGMW
