The charitable giving of our Jewish community embodies the values and traditions of the Jewish Federation of Ocean County. It says we will address a broad array of critical issues to see that no Jew in need is ever turned away.
It is the focal point of giving which provides the unrestricted funding needed to answer the diverse Jewish needs in Ocean County, Israel, and overseas, and the designated giving that makes connections between our generous community and the programs they connect strongly to.
In addition to being our community’s safety net, the Federation supports a wealth of programs that strengthen Jewish identity and guarantee Jewish continuity by pumping much-needed dollars into our local and overseas partner agencies.
