Jewish Federation supports and engages the Jewish community
The Federation of Jewish Agencies was established in March 1936 to serve the Jews of the Atlantic City area by providing coordinated cultural, educational, philanthropic, religious, social, and welfare services to the local Jewish community through fundraising and programming. Its chief goal was administering annual giving campaigns through the annual campaign, on behalf of the national United Jewish Appeal.
Today, in cooperation and partnership with our affiliate agencies, local congregations, community groups, and volunteer-driven community organizations, Jewish Federation’s dedicated leadership, volunteers, and professional staff work to disseminate information and develop programs and services that create awareness and understanding of issues important to all Americans, of all ethnicities, including anti-Semitism, Holocaust education, discrimination and racism, the fight against international terrorism, human rights, and poverty.
Our long history in this community is the gift of support, philanthropic and physical, extended to us so generously over the years by members of the Jewish communities of Atlantic and Cape May counties.
