Israel & Overseas 

We feel it is our responsibility to advocate for Israel and every Jewish community around the world. We provide support to ensure Jewish identity continues to thrive and that the safety, security, and well-being of Jews is maintained globally. To that end, the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey’s largest annual allocation is to Israel and overseas. That allocation funds programming and services through our partner agencies: The Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) and the the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC)
