Guided by the Jewish values of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) and Tzedakah (righteous giving), our purpose is to mobilize human and financial resources to support, strengthen, and meet the shared responsibilities of our community. Seeking to strengthen Jewish identity, the Federation serves as the facilitating force that connects generations, congregations and the unaffiliated alike.
