When “Andy,” a middle manager in his late 40s was laid off, he turned to Jewish Vocational Service for career counseling and job placement services. 

When 85-year-old “Edith” became homebound, she was still able to enjoy a hot kosher lunch five days a week through the Jewish Family Service of Central NJ’s Kosher Meals on Wheels program.

Three-year-old “Amanda” insists that her parents read her PJ Library® books every night.

“Mark,” 22, rediscovered his Jewish identity on a Birthright Israel trip.

With the assistance of MetroWest ABLE, the “Cohen” family found a warm synagogue community that welcomed their son with special needs.

Inspired by our Jewish values, Federation cares for people in need in Greater MetroWest, Israel, and around the world. We connect individuals and families of any age or stage of life to a community of Jewish people in ways that are personally meaningful; to them. Together we build upon and ensure a vibrant Jewish community today and for future generations. 

The largest Jewish philanthropy in New Jersey and the eighth largest federation in the country, Federation encompasses Essex, Morris, Sussex, Union, and parts of Somerset County. (Click here for a list of towns we serve.) Federation is unique because we are the only local organization with the infrastructure and expertise to effectively and efficiently fund and support a community-wide and overseas network of 27 local partner agencies and four overseas agencies that create and implement inventive solutions to the full range of human needs. We also respond deftly to crises as they arise.

Federation believes that a strong, secure Israel is the bedrock of the global Jewish community. The hallmark of the Greater MetroWest-Israel connection is the building of living bridges with our seven partner communities and Israel-at-large. We also partner with two communities in the Former Soviet Union.

All of Federation’s work, in MetroWest, Israel, and around the world, is inspired our commitment to Klal Yisrael and tikkun olam — one Jewish people and repairing of the world — and made possible by the generosity of the Greater MetroWest Jewish community.
