The Jewish Federation of North America
Helping to meet the needs of the Jewish Community in North America and abroad
The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) currently represent 146 Jewish Federations across the United States. Their Network communities consistently fundraise, allocate, and distribute more >$3 million annually to support social services, educational needs, and welfare programs.
The Federation collective is among the top 10 charities in North America, and its mission is to protect and enhance the livelihoods and well-beings of Jews through the values of tikkun olam (repairing the world), tzedakah (charity and social justice), and Torah (Jewish learning).
The JFNA regularly lobbies in Washington, D.C. and has secured $10 billion in funds that are allocated to Jewish communities and their services. The funds support agencies serving people of various backgrounds including medical facilities, nursing homes, community services, and family service agencies.
