STRENGTHENING
JEWISH LIFE

We’re strengthening Jewish identity and Jewish community locally and globally.
There’s no one way to lead a Jewish life or participate in our diverse Jewish community. That’s why our support offers many opportunities for people to find the path that matches their interests and needs.
Jewish summer camps that bring summer fun together with Jewish values. Innovative Jewish education programs for both children and adults. JCCs and Hillels to nurture Jewish experiences in the community and on campus. And deeper connections between American Jews who come from different backgrounds, as well as American Jews and Israelis. Because we share a common destiny.
