Federation Mission

Our Mission
The mission of the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven is to lead, build, strengthen and renew a dynamic local Jewish community and to provide support and caring for Jewish people in our community, Israel and worldwide. We are guided by the traditional Jewish values of Torah (tradition, learning and deeds), Tikkun Olam (improving the condition of our world), Tzedakah (philanthropy and acts of loving kindness), and k’lal Yisrael (Jewish peoplehood).

Our Vision
The Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven will strive to be the central organization and resource for communal planning, outreach and Jewish education. The Federation will endeavor

  1. to raise the necessary funds to fulfill its mission;
  2. to support its beneficiary agencies, synagogues and other local and national organizations; and
  3. to represent the concerns and needs of our constituents in the Jewish and general Greater New Haven community, Israel and worldwide.
