Join Us in Helping Our Most Vulnerable through the
COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund

The spread of the coronavirus is having significant implications on life here in South Jersey, across the country and around the globe. While it is still too early to determine what the long-term impact will be, we know that the most vulnerable communities will be hit hardest. In addition, we are looking at both short and long term needs for our Federation system, our Jewish Community Center, Jewish Family & Children Services, Jewish Day Schools along with all Jewish community institutions.

 

Federations were made for times like these. In crisis, we are the safety net and the support system that sustains Jewish communal life.

 

Please support our COVID-19 Response Fund. Every dollar granted, donated, or earned goes back into the community to address clear and present problems.
