JFEC invites you to explore the Federation’s impact locally, in Israel and around the world. Through December 31, we will highlight our programs and events and individuals whose lives are changed by our work. We hope you will get involved with Federation at events and be inspired to make meaningful contributions to Federation’s 2021 Annual Campaign.

Just Say YES to Federation. Make a difference. Build community.

Are you ready to just say ‘YES,” and help Federation secure the future of our community?

Every gift, no matter the amount, represents your commitment to sustain and enhance Jewish life here in Eastern Connecticut and around the world. When you give, you strenthen our community.


  • Saying YES to supporting families and individuals in crisis
  • Saying YES to fighting Holocaust denial and racial divides through our Encountering Programs
  • Saying YES to feeding a hungry community
  • Saying YES to cultivating Jewish identity through PJ Library youth program, junior and senior youth groups, and Jewish Community High School
  • Saying YES to the return of our Young Emissaries in 2022


Just Say YES to Federation. Make a difference. Build community.

We are virtually working with young people, teens, Hillel, and our Israeli Emissaries. Every week we get new subscriptions to PJ Library because their events are highlighting the importance of finding and exploring Jewish identity through fun, cooking, and reading.

The Leader remains a critical outlet for news and events, and we are still publishing and delivering without the aid of our dedicated volunteers. The Community Calendar debuts in September, enabling our entire Jewish community to stay connected and active in vibrant Jewish life.

We are working harder than ever before because we must do more than ever before. So, when you get that call from a Federation volunteer to ask for your gift, please answer with your support. When that letter arrives asking for your pledge, please send it back to us with your donation. Please give more.

Just Say YES to Federation. Make a difference. Build community.

Thank you for supporting us!
