CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER
Caring and taking responsibility for each other is a core Jewish value – arevut – and one that defines us as a community. No one should live in social isolation, experience hunger, or feel excluded. In short, Federation is here to help all members of our community live their best lives.
Our senior population is growing and so is Federation’s commitment to helping them live actively and meaningfully. Kosher Meals on Wheels is funded by Federation to ensure all seniors receive the nutritional support they need. Our partnerships with the senior facilities and programs in the community ensure there are services for older adults, their families and caregivers. For more information, please contact Sheryl Sarin, Senior Director, Community Planning and Allocations at SherylS@jfnnj.org or 201-820-3913.
Millions of children and families living in America are experience food insecurity every day including thousands living right here in our community. Federation meets this high priority need throughout the year by funding a variety of programs that reach the most vulnerable among us as well as leading several food-drives that re-stock local pantries when they need it most. Additionally, we support and fund many initiatives that provide access to warm meals, food pantries, hot holiday meals and Kosher Meals on Wheels. For more information, please contact Sheryl Sarin, Senior Director, Community Planning and Allocations at SherylS@jfnnj.org or 201-820-3913.
Disabilities & Inclusion
It’s quite common for families in northern New Jersey to know a child, sibling, neighbor or friend who experiences some kind of disability. Jewish Federation is devoted to the inclusion of those children and adults in our community. We work with our agencies to offer people with disabilities and their loved ones the resources needed to live meaningful, fulfilling lives rooted in Jewish values. Together, we support educational programs, advocacy efforts, rehabilitation and bar/bat mitzvah training for special needs students in various denominational venues.
