Missions

At Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ, we are engaged in the work of tikkun olam (repairing the world). Always mindful of the Jewish tradition that each person is an entire world, we strive to make a difference in a person’s life, a family’s potential, a community’s spirit. On a Federation mission, you’ll encounter individuals and entire communities who benefit from our services, our programs, and the compassion of our donors who make it all possible.

A mission with Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ is a life-changing opportunity to witness and be inspired by the role every Jew can play in supporting the continuation of the Jewish people. Whether on a trip to Israel, Cuba, Ukraine, Italy or Argentina, there are few experiences that can match the lasting impact and intense experience of a mission.

History shows that a mission is often the impetus for someone to become involved in the work of tikkun olam (repairing the world), the hallmark of Federation’s mission. Missions change participants’ world views and are the catalyst propelling mission alumnae into making a difference in Greater MetroWest and beyond through Federation.

It was an unbelievable seven days in Israel for almost 500 members of our Greater MetroWest community. From our opening night in Tel Aviv, to our Farewell Party at the Barkan Winery, we bonded with Israel, friends new and old, our sense of Jewish Identity, and our Collective Future. What an amazing week!!
