The Need: Why Now?

Whether it’s Holocaust survivors, home-bound seniors, people with disabilities, or those who are struggling through a crisis, Federation and our partner agencies make sure that everyone gets the support they need to ensure our community thrives. We need your help now to combat antisemitism, respond immediately to crises near and far as they happen, invest in our Jewish future, and strengthen security in our community.  None of this work would be possible without the generosity of community members who want to help. With $50,000 in donor-backed funds, we can support and strengthen our community together.

Combat Antisemitism

Federation invests in education about antisemitism and builds bridges with other groups to stand against hate and ensure we keep local Jewish institutions in our area safe.

Respond to Crisis Near and Far

Federation provides humanitarian aid within Ukraine, including food, shelter, lifesaving medical supplies, and support for Holocaust survivors & isolated older adults. We also assist evacuation efforts for refugees fleeing the war zone and facilitate Aliyah for those who want to go to Israel. We are there now, because we’ve been there, and will be there for as long as we are needed.

Invest in Our Future

At every stage, there is a place for you in our Federation community. It is only through the engagement of our diverse community members that we can continue to grow and flourish. We believe that investing in our Jewish community through education and engagement is a direct investment in our future. With your support, our Jewish community  continues to adapt and thrive.

Strengthen Community Security

Institutions in Greater MetroWest believe their organization is better prepared for a security threat because of Jewish Federation. Federation’s security team works to ensure that the safety measures put into place send a clear message that the space is welcoming and secure. Federation continuously tracks the safety of the Greater MetroWest community and remains vigilant throughout the year.

How to promote your fundraiser:

Promote your fundraiser to support our UJA Annual Campaign on any social media platform or messaging app. You’ll have your very own digital fundraising platform to make it simple, easy, and fun to rally support from your network of friends and family. Here are some ideas:

  • Designate the 5th Night of Hanukkah as a night for your family to give back instead of getting gifts.
  • Celebrate your birthday or mark a special occasion by asking for donations in lieu of gifts.
  • Honor a loved one by asking for tributes in recognition of their life and legacy.
