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 Va’etchanan includes a retelling of the story of the Israelites receiving the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai. In this week’s Bit of Torah, Rabbi Adrienne Rubin of Temple Beth Ahm Yisrael in Springfield teaches us the differences between Shabbat in the Exodus and Deuteronomy decalogues and how we might consider those as we make Shabbat personally meaningful. #IamGMW
