Give To a Specific Need 

If you are passionate about a particular cause, make your impact where it means the most to you. Currently,  Jewish Federation in the Heart of New Jersey provides opportunities to target giving for Coronavirus COVID-19 relief, as well as enhancing security, fighting anti-Semitism, aiding those in need, and fostering experiences for kids to strengthen the Jewish future. Thank you for your support.



Individuals and families across the Jewish community are facing job loss, lost wages and earnings, business closures, medical expenses, and mental health crises resulting from the Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic. Non-profit institutions that form the Jewish community's backbone and safety net face a devastating loss of donations needed to care for those in need. 

Jewish Federaton's Coronavirus / COVID-19 Relief Fund is the Jewish community's unified initiative to benefit individuals and families as well as the organizations, agencies, and synagogues that make this community stronger, safer, more supportive, and sweet.    


Combat Anti-Semitism

Support Federation community relations, education, and advocacy initiatives with Jewish, interfaith, and civic partners throughout the private and public sectors to stem hate.  


Enhance Security

Jewish Federation is building on $4 million in security enhancements for dozens of Jewish organizations from Asbury Park to Highland Park to Kendall Park and beyond. 


Care for Those in Need

Support kosher meals on wheels, Holocaust survivor aid, mental health and addiction treatment, inclusion for people with special needs, aid for families in crisis, and more.


Strengthen the Jewish Future

Federation is fostering joyful, meaningful, inspiring, and educational Jewish experiences for kids from birth through college to invest in a strong Jewish future.
