We know having a young family requires a lot of multitasking. Juggling schedules, meeting family demands, providing educational opportunities, creating quality time, and making memories are all very time consuming and can often be overwhelming. Let Federation be your partner in creating a Jewish network of friends and providing opportunities for your family to enrich and fortify your Jewish life.


The Volunteer Center offers individuals and families a meaningful way to participate in Tikkun Olam (repairing the world)  initiatives. Through needs-driven, impactful programs, volunteers serve the Jewish and broader communities —  ultimately strengthening a collective community.

Kids love books. Books stimulate the imagination, encourage a love of learning, and create bonds between parents and children.  PJ Library is a program Federation supports that sends free age appropriate books to kids throughout their formative years to help build a foundation for Jewish life.

It’s swimming, campfires, and color war. Jewish camp is about discovering yourself and making lifelong friendships. Jewish camp is the place where you can build your Jewish identity while driving go-karts, starring in plays, conquering the ropes course, or playing in a rock band. Attending Jewish camp means your child is much more likely to continue their Jewish journey as an adult. Jewish Federation offers One Happy Camper Incentive grants for first and second year campers to encourage families to send their children to Jewish overnight camp. Contact Rachel E.
