The mission of the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia is to mobilize financial and volunteer resources to address the community's most critical priorities in Philadelphia, Israel and overseas.
The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia sees a flourishing global Jewish community – today and for future generations – that is continually strengthened by:
inspiring participation in Jewish life and learning through Jewish day school opportunities, enhanced synagogue schooling and programming, a coordinated outreach effort by community organizations to young Jews and Jewish families, and increased educational and leadership opportunities for young adults.
caring for people at-risk or in need through programs that help seniors to age with dignity, aid for the chronically poor, self-sufficiency initiatives for Jews facing poverty, hunger relief, and transformative social action efforts.
connecting Jews in Greater Philadelphia to each other and to Jews in Israel and around the world through Israel advocacy, overseas hunger relief and security programming, and support for Jewish seniors, children and immigrants in Israel and other overseas nations.
