Dedicated to building and sustaining a vibrant and inclusive local Jewish community and supporting Jewish life in the East Bay, Israel, and around the world.
FederationsBased on the traditions of tzedakah (righteous behavior) and communal responsibility, the Jewish Federations are volunteer-based, nonprofit organizations that raise funds to support social services, culture and education. As umbrella agencies, the Federations allocate dollars in their geographic areas, Israel and elsewhere around the world. Federations play an important role in community planning and leadership development. In addition, Federation endowment funds help to ensure the financial security of the Jewish community.
