The Federation's Impact
The six areas identified here focus on critical needs in our local and global Jewish community. At The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington we identify, evaluate and address these priorities with unparalleled commitment, passion and sensitivity. We take seriously our responsibility to ensure that needs are met, to create a stronger, more vibrant Jewish community and to foster and strengthen our connection with Jews in Israel and around the world.
