The impact of the 146 Jewish Federations across North America changes lives in North America, in Israel and around the world. Jewish Federations identify, support, and address the full range of social service issues. We provide life-saving humanitarian relief, breakthrough programs for all ages, and sustain Jewish community today and for future generations. Together, we collectively raise and distribute billions annually for social welfare, social services, and educational needs.  We also protect and enhance the well-being of Jews in 70 countries worldwide.
