Jewish Community Federation – Volunteer Placement

Jewish Community Federation - Volunteer Placement

The Jewish Community Federation works to protect and enhance Jewish life in our community through fundraising, strategic planning and providing funding for programs that care for those in need; that strengthen and secure the safety of the Jewish people; and that foster Jewish renaissance at home, in Israel and in other Jewish communities.

The Federation gives continuity to Jewish values:

  • Mutual respect and accommodation of diversity within Jewish life (klal Yisrael)
  • The requirement of righteous giving and just behavior that ensures the basic well-being of fellow human beings (tzedakah)
  • The obligation to do good works, promote peace and understanding, and help the hungry, homeless and oppressed (tikkun olam)
  • The promoting of educational and cultural opportunities for Jews and interfaith families at every stage of life (Jewish identity)
  • The supporting of Israel, the democratic homeland for the Jewish people

The Federation fulfills our mission by:

  • Providing financial resources to help meet short- and long-term community needs, both locally and globally
  • Supplying educational resources for children, adults, educators and families
  • Working with the media, policy-makers, and other opinion-shapers on behalf of various community constituencies
  • Keeping the community informed about relevant current issues
  • Changing lives and giving people the opportunity for new experiences through programs and services
