With us, you can join a group — in your own town or neighborhood — that reflects your personal, professional, and charitable interests.

We offer something for everyone.
You can participate in major events, volunteer projects, Jewish studies classes, and social activities with people who share your interests and concerns.

Whether you’re a high-profile executive or just getting started, our professional divisions offer great opportunities to meet like-minded people in every field: law, entertainment, finance, medicine, marketing, fashion, technology, real estate, and more.

And there are so many other groups to join. If you’re single or married, young or old . . . looking for companionship or intellectual stimulation . . . living in the center of Manhattan or on Long Island . . . giving at the highest levels of philanthropy or investigating your first charity . . . UJA-Federation of New York has the right group for you.

We share your concerns.
The minute you join one of our philanthropic groups, you become part of a caring community, a community that cares about:

  • you and your family.
  • the welfare of Jews at home and around the world.
  • the vulnerable people you want to help.
  • the choices you make for yourself, your family, and your community.

So join with colleagues, neighbors, and friends who care about our efforts — the leaders of industry who control Fortune 500 companies, the concerned young adults who are exploring their philanthropic choices, and the men and women of all ages and interests who share one common goal: to make a profound difference.
