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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
