Our Impact

The Jewish Federation touches the lives of thousands of individuals in Greater Mercer County, Israel, and the World.


Working collaboratively with our partners, lay leaders, and experts, we accomplish great things not feasible if attempted alone.

Lead in Times of Crises

  • When COVID19 hit, we made sure our religious institutions and partner agencies had the supplies they needed to continue to operate
  • When Israel came under terrorist fire, we helped to make sure our brothers and sisters hiding in the shelters had access to food and medical supplies

“Greenwood House is grateful for the generosity of the Federation which supports our Jewish Holiday programming.”

– Neil Wise, Development Director, Greenwood House

“Thanks to the Federation’s support, we are able to provide 30 local, Jewish older adults with a special comfort found in a traditional Shabbat meal. Particularly during the pandemic, maintaining traditions, such as enjoying a regular Shabbat dinner, bring an extra sense of stability to those we serve.”

-Michelle Napell, Executive Director, Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Greater Mercer County (JFCS)

“I have been attending the Israeli Fair for many years as a camper and now, as a staff member, I love experiencing it through my campers’ eyes. It’s just magical.”
