Our support in Israel includes our partnership with Afula-Gilboa
The Jewish Federation of Western CT is part of the Southern New England Consortium (SNEC) which in 1994 was partnered with the cities of Afula-Gilboa in Israel. The Federation has contributed to this partnership through donations that have helped to improve education, security and health care for the people of this region.
We support social services, vocational training, and programs that promote mutual cooperation and understanding between Israelis and Arabs. We support Israel and advocate for the Jewish Community.
