Our Mission

Inspiring a Passion for Jewish Life and Learning

UJA-Federation helps Jews discover the richness of their heritage.

Strengthening Jewish Communities

Today, UJA-Federation's programs are helping Ethiopian Jews become vital participants in Israeli life

Through UJA-Federation of New York, you care for people in need, inspire a passion for Jewish life and learning, and strengthen communities in New York, in Israel, and around the world.

Caring is about the warm embrace of community.

We're enabling Jews to overcome crises, cope with the struggles of everyday life, and achieve self-sufficiency. Our caring hand extends to those living in poverty, the aging, Holocaust survivors, children and adults with disabilities and special needs, and the unemployed across the economic spectrum. We provide access to crucial human services to all New Yorkers, whoever they are, and Jews everywhere.

Inspiring is about Jewish education and identity.

Our goal is to impart the Jewish values that inform everything we do — and to improve access to quality Jewish education. We're reinvigorating the institutions that help shape Jewish life. Opening doors to Jews of every background. Teaching the next generation of communal leaders. Creating powerful learning experiences for children and adults. We're building the foundation for tomorrow's Jewish community today.

Strengthening is about Jewish peoplehood.

We're connecting Jews around the world to one another, building unity and fostering a sense of collective responsibility. For Jews facing adversity and untold hardship, we're a lifeline and a way home — a reminder that we are all part of one people — never alone and never forgotten.
