Who We Are


The Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey and our family of agencies supports those in need, enhances Jewish life, and ensures the continuity of a vibrant Jewish community locally, in Israel, and around the world.


Our goal as the Federation is to bring the Jewish community together, promote Jewish life and learning, and connect to our culture and heritage to strengthen that bond. We work tirelessly for our community and serve vulnerable populations to help those in need—locally and around the world. We do our best to inspire the next generation to embrace Jewish life and continue that legacy.

What We Do


Serving Camden, Burlington, and Gloucester Counties.


We distribute our resources into five areas that everyone can find a home in. We want to make an impact in a big way to help everyone, no matter what area they fall into.


So how do we do that?


Older Adults— We keep older adults engaged in the community with social, recreational, and cultural programming infused with Jewish heritage and values.


Special Needs— When it comes to members of our community with special needs, we are committed to enhancing their quality of life, and giving everyone opportunities to achieve their highest potential to lead independent and fulfilled lives.


Global Connections We advocate for Israel and every Jewish community around the world to ensure that the safety, security, and well-being of Jews is maintained globally. 


Community Engagement— We foster relationships within the Jewish community and between people of all faiths and cultures to help build a better world today.


Family & Youth We provide family and youth services that enrich both the mind and body through comprehensive, caring social services, along with recreational, cultural, and educational programming.
