The Jewish Federation of Central Massachusetts is dedicated to the preservation and enrichment of Jewish life. Established in 1948, the Federation is the central planning and fundraising organization for educational, social, and cultural activities for the Jewish community of Central Massachusetts. The Federation embraces meaningful philanthropy, hands-on volunteerism, and shared commitment. Through the Annual Community Campaign and the efforts of hundreds of volunteers, the Federation helps support and promote vital programs and services that knit our community together. Working in partnership with national UJC, the Federation also helps thousands of people annually in Israel and around the world. Federation resources help rescue the imperiled, comfort the distressed, and revitalize Jewish life. Through the Federation/UJC Campaign, we stand together so no Jew stands alone.
