MISSION STATEMENT:

Guided by Jewish ethics, the Jewish Federation and Foundation of Rockland County (“Federation”) is the County’s leading organization that uniquely convenes collective action, identifies and helps the most vulnerable, addresses security needs, strengthens connections to Israel, combats antisemitism, and celebrates the breadth and beauty of Jewish identity, truly bringing Rockland’s community together.

 

VISION STATEMENT:

BRINGING THE COMMUNITY TOGETHER

Rockland’s Jewish community is unlike any other in its strengths and its challenges. Federation is the community’s convener - celebrating our heritage, securing Jewish lives and institutions and congregations, acting together in support of Israel, and empowering our diverse community to take action against antisemitism.
 

HELPING THOSE IN NEED

The vital needs and interests of the Jewish community and helping the vulnerable here and abroad are at the core of Federation’s identity and agenda and are met through allocation grants, directed gifts and legacy giving.
 

STRENGTHENING JEWISH INSTITUTIONS

Leveraging the community’s resources, Federation supports and enables expressions of Jewish identity and engagement, reaching a diverse population inclusive of background, observance, gender and race. We achieve this by delivering or supporting a range of Jewish services, programs and experiences- including in Rockland, in Israel and around the world.
 

CELEBRATING JEWISH LIFE

Uniquely among Rockland’s Jewish institutions, Federation acts in the communal interest beyond limitations of place, platform or media, investing in Jewish life and celebrating the tradition, heritage and culture that distinguishes our community.
 

ACTING WITH INTEGRITY

Federation strives to maintain a steadfast ethical communal voice in Rockland, informed by consultation, partnerships, and collective action across divides both within and beyond the Jewish community.
