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 Parashat Vayishlach, Jacob wrestles all night with a mysterious divine being. In this week’s Bit of Torah, Rabbi David Vaisberg of Temple B’nai Abraham explores who this being might be and what we should take from it in these turbulent times. #JewishLearning #Torah #IamGMW
