Human Services

HEALTH, SOCIAL WELFARE, AND RELATED SERVICES: Federation's Center for Social Responsibility brings sustenance, help, and empowerment to the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of our community. The center convenes and works with community organizations to plan and implement an array of innovative and effective health and human services programs that address the needs of the Jewish elderly, the impoverished, at-risk Jews, and Jews facing insecurity. Programs include Mitzvah's Food Pantry and Miriam's Project. UNITED JEWISH APPEAL: Federation's Center for Israel and Overseas embraces the notion of K'lal Yisrael - we are one people - by connecting our local community with Jews in Israel and in countries around the world. The center advocates and provides high-impact support for Israel, and supporting Jews in need globally, including immigrants, the elderly, children, and victims of terror. JEWISH EDUCATION: Federation's Center for Jewish Life and Learning sustains and grows the Greater Philadelphia Jewish community by promoting Jewish identity and helping Jews connect to their heritage, to each other, and to Jewish community organizations. The center conducts research and creates strategic programming to have an impact in the areas of adult education, day school education, and supplementary educational opportunities, as well as community outreach.
