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 Renee Edelman of Temple Shaarey Shalom in Springfield teaches us that angels exist in Judaism. Parshat Vayishlach is the second parashah where Jacob meets an unknown angel or being who changes his life. Shabbat Shalom! #JewishLearning #Torah #IamGMW
