UJA-Federation of New York works together with rabbis, cantors, Jewish educators, and volunteer leaders at area synagogues to strengthen Jewish institutions and make synagogues the center of Jewish life in communities throughout the area.
We help synagogues strengthen their Jewish studies programs, increase membership, expand human-service efforts, develop leadership, and operate more efficiently.
Our aim is to support Jewish life today and for tomorrow. And through our shared commitment to Jewish life, we strive to make synagogues vital centers of community, learning, and spiritual renewal.
The Manhattan Division creates opportunities for all synagogue members to participate in UJA-Federation events. We work with synagogues to honor congregants at breakfasts, brunches, and dinners; provide exciting speakers on thought-provoking topics; and bring lively events to the community.
Each synagogue event honors a longtime member of the congregation and a newer member whose dedication to the community and the synagogue are laudable.
