Working to further the welfare and advancement of the Jewish community locally, overseas and in Israel

In our local community, we work to foster cooperation among local Jewish organizations

We raise and distribute money and develop programming for philanthropic, social, cultural, educational and religious purposes

Volunteer- Jewish Tradition teaches us that we must play an active role in the world. The concept of Tikkun Olam—repairing the world—expresses the value of volunteering in Judaism. The world may be imperfect, but we have an obligation to help make it better, more whole.
