United Jewish Communities represents and serves 156 Jewish federations and 400 independent communities across North America. It reflects the values of social justice and human rights that define the Jewish people and the values of caring that transform lives and perform miracles.
United Jewish Communities represents and serves one of the world's largest and most effective networks of social-service providers and programs. Men, women and children -- professionals and volunteers -- dedicated to safeguarding and enhancing Jewish life.
Serving the federations of North America, United Jewish Communities plants the seeds for Jewish renaissance and renewal; ensures that the Jewish community never wavers on its commitment to provide human services and to advocate for just social policy; and works to continuously strengthen the North American Jewish community's link to Israel and the worldwide Jewish family.
Formed in 1999 to put forth a new model of community and philanthropy, United Jewish Communities promotes the tolerance, the understanding and the excitement that create vibrant communities of Jewish learning and growth...and crosses all borders to pursue care for the poor, food for the hungry and advocacy and compassion for everyone who needs it.
