Jewish Federation of Central New Jersey

The Jewish Federation of Central New Jersey (JFCNJ) is dedicated to strengthening the spirit of charity and community among the Jewish people. JFCNJ is the central address of the Jewish community in Union County and parts of Somerset. Federation’s mission includes engaging all major Jewish groups within the community in order to advance social justice, enhance the quality of life for Jewish and non-Jewish members of our community, and maintain links with Jews in Israel and throughout the world.

Through partner agencies, Federation provides direct services to the entire community. Local programs support a wide range of help to the elderly, youth and families including meals on wheels, home health care, educational and camp scholarships, transportation needs, social integration, rehabilitation, cultural awareness and counseling as well as other emergency services.

Federation’s Community Relations Committee (CRC) works with elected officials to advocate on behalf on issues of importance to the Jewish community as well as to look for local, state and federal funding sources for Federation programs, such as NORCs. Additionally, Federation works with inter-faith and inter-ethnic partners to address common issues of concern.

Our two overseas partner agencies -- the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) and The Jewish American Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) -- enable Federation to support people around the world dealing with hunger, homelessness, aging, illness, anti-Semitism and danger. In Israel, Federation supports aliyah (immigration) and absorption, education, healthcare and crisis intervention, as well as victims of terrorist attacks and families of those killed in such attacks.

Federation also responds quickly and effectively to natural disasters around the world, including Japan, Pakistan, Chile, Haiti, New Orleans and anywhere else crisis has struck. Through its partners, Federation is often one of, if not the firfst forgein aid agency on the ground in the immediate aftermath of events like earthquakes and the like.
