Our communities are wonderfully diverse. And this diversity makes us all stronger. Every day, we nurture welcoming and accessible Jewish communities, neighborhood by neighborhood, region by region.

From Forest Hills to Fort Greene. Kew Gardens to Kensington. Midwood to Mamaroneck. Long Island to Staten Island. We foster connections between Jewish New Yorkers of all backgrounds and identities. We’re Jewish New Yorkers — audacious, creative, and proud of what makes each one of us unique.

“We talk a lot in this country about the importance of civics, of being involved in society and taking an active role. I think there’s kind of a Jewish civics that says we have to get involved in our synagogue, in our Federation. That’s why I sought out UJA.”
