Oy Corona! - A Night of Comedy to Support JFCS

 

We had a great night.  Comedian Robin Fox and most of our participants powered through despite not having electricity!  And you can still participate by watching the show, voting for your favorite jokester, and donating to help JFCS – your contribution will go 25X as far.  Donate NOW!

We've had wonderful Lunch & Learns
about the challenges facing the Jewish community globally.  
Help us define priorities for overseas Israel grants this fall.
Please respond by August 27.

Continuing its program of sending a message of support and appreciation to our first responders, the Jewish Federation has been arranging "feel good" food deliveries to local police departments.  In Ocean County, they have been great partners to the Jewish community in addressing our security concerns and combating hate and anti-Semitism.  Thank you!

The police department's chose their preferred treats.  Al's Pizza delivered to the Toms River department, Lakewood Police requested Jersey Mike's,

 and Divi Tree Coffee put together a wonderful display for the Brick Police.

The Jewish Federation of Ocean County condemns racism in all its forms, whether anti-Semitism or white supremacy or any other form of bigotry.

 

Numerous Jewish organizations have made statements of solidarity following the death of George Floyd.

 

Statement from The Jewish Federations of North America:
 


The Jewish Federations of North America is outraged and sickened by the violence of the Minneapolis police officers that led to the death of George Floyd. We share in the heartbreak, pain and sorrow provoked by his loss and the loss of many others through sordid acts of hate and bigotry. May their memory be for a blessing.


We pledge to our brothers and sisters in the black community – and all communities of color – to work together to reverse the systemic racism embedded within our country’s institutions and society in general. “Our work won’t be easy,” revered civil rights icon Congressman John Lewis reminded us this week, “nothing worth having ever is.”


In the strongest terms, we also condemn those who are taking advantage of the anguish over George Floyd’s death by hijacking what would be peaceful rallies across the country for their own violent and destructive agenda. These acts threaten our Jewish communities as well as our democracy as a whole. We commit to partnering with community leaders to ensure the safety of all who are risk.


Together, we can and must be stronger than hate. We will stand and fight for a world free of racism and bigotry in all of its forms.
