Doing a World of Good.

Together, we care for the needy here at home and provide a safety net for the most vulnerable in our community.  All over the world, Federation is helping people in need and inspiring our Jewish future.  Whether promoting Israel travel experiences, helping the unemployed live with dignity or supporting families with special needs, together we do a world of good.

Our Community. Our Inspiration.

Caring for people in need here at home, in Israel and in communities around the world is at the core of what Jewish Federation is all about. Requests for both housing and food assistance have increased this past year. But there is something you can do.

Every gift makes a difference.744

The impact is real. It is tangible. And it changes lives for the better. It's easier to find work if you're no longer hungry.  It's easier to break out of the cycle of poverty if you have access to community training centers.  Whether it's here in Tidewater, in Israel, or in Eastern Europe, we must help those who need it most.
