The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia is grateful for your incredible support during another tumultuous year. From a lingering global pandemic to war and rising antisemitism, the Jewish Federation does not waver. The strong foundation upon which the Jewish Federation stands is our community, steeped in the tradition of mitzvot and tikkun olam.
Helping Neighbors Near and Far
Through collective and generous support, the Jewish Federation mobilizes financial resources and volunteer leadership that addresses top priorities in the community. In addition to responding to critical human needs, the Jewish Federation engages and inspires the next generation of Jewish community leaders, which is central to securing a strong Jewish community for generations to come.

$1.5 million raised to provide vital humanitarian work in Ukraine, neighboring countries, Israel and Greater Philadelphia
$78 million raised by Jewish Federations across America to provide humanitarian aid to refugees in Ukraine and neighboring countries through organizations, like JDC, The Jewish Agency for Israel, World ORT and more than 50 NGOs

Keeping the Jewish Community Safe and Secure
The safety and well-being of Jewish communities is critical. In working to combat increased antisemitism worldwide, the Jewish Federation expanded its community security initiative with Secure Community Network, the official safety and security organization for the Jewish community across North America to provide resources for communal security to identify and proactively address potential safety threats in the area.
As part of this new initiative, the Jewish Federation’s new security director provides training across local partner organizations, providing critical tools to keep the community safe.
