Coronavirus Updates & Resources

Jewish life is best lived together, and that is still true while we practice social distancing to help slow the spread of Coronavirus and COVID-19. 

Jewish Federation offers this online portal to Jewish life and resources to help Jewish Monmouth and Greater Middlesex counties stay informed, connected, and supported during this time.  

We are in this together.

While we weather the Coronavirus outbreak, please know Jewish Federation is here to keep you connected to Jewish resources and Jewish life.
