About the Jewish Federation

Jewish Federations of North America protects and enhances the well-being of Jews and Jewish communities in North America, Israel and around the world, striving to realize our core values of chesed (caring and compassion), Torah (Jewish Learning), tikkun olam (repair of the world) and tzedakah (social justice). JFNA, as the central address of the federations, acts upon these values through its philanthropic endeavors, its strategic initiatives, and its collective leadership—in partnership with local communities, national and international agencies—to strengthen Jewish communities, peoplehood, Jewish learning and living, social justice and Klal Yisrael.


How We Make A Difference


With your help, the extraordinary impact of the 151 Jewish Federations across North America changes lives here at home, in Israel and in more than 70 countries around the world. The Jewish Federation system identifies, supports and addresses the full range of social service issues, provides lifesaving humanitarian relief, supports breakthrough programs for all ages, and sustains the Jewish community today and for future Generations.

The Jewish Federations of North America raise and distribute more than $3 billion annually for social welfare, social services and educational needs. The Federation movement protects and enhances the well-being of Jews worldwide. We make a difference through our team and partner agencies in each Federation community, and globally through key partners including The Jewish Agency for Israel and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee.
