Welcome to the 11th annual Global Day of Jewish Learning…GDJL


GDJL began in 2010 as a celebration of Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz’ z”l monumental work of translating the Talmud. It is now an annual celebration bringing together Jews across the spectrum of beliefs and organizations, and into classrooms and homes all around the world.


We have chosen as this year’s theme, Human Dignity, because this enduring Jewish value is more important in this year of the Pandemic than ever.


GDJL is a project of Limmud North America and is dedicated to connecting people of all Jewish backgrounds to learn from and with the rabbinic bodies of all the denominations, for promoting the Global Day to their constituencies.


Please join these three great Rockland teachers, Rabbis Jill Hackell, Ami Hersh, and Paul Kurland, and take a step ahead in your own Jewish learning and commitment. 

Do You Wish You Could Make Your Money Multiply Itself? Here’s Your Chance To Make It Happen!

If you have never given to Jewish Federation & Foundation of Rockland County, now’s the time. Every new donation that’s made to Federation between now and December 31, 2020, will be matched at 100%. 


With your gift, here’s what you’re accomplishing. You’re helping Federation extend much needed help to organizations who have stepped up to meet the needs of those suffering through the pandemic. That includes support for isolated Holocaust survivors, child care scholarships for essential workers, and food to fill the shelves at Rockland Jewish Family Service’s Rhoda Bloom Kosher Food Pantry. 


What better way to make your money work harder than with this 100% match? Your $18 gift will become $36. Your $25 gift will become $50, and your $100 gift will become $200. 


FYI, if you haven't given in a while, your gift counts. You, too, can double the good your generosity can do. Can we count on you to make the good you do better? Will you help Federation do its part for the well-being of Rockland County’s Jewish community?


Thank you!

Doing Jewish

It’s what we do every day. Whether it’s the food we favor…a bagel with shmear… or the drive to repair the world…tikkun olam, we Jews are there, especially in Rockland County, where there are plenty of opportunities. We plan to bring some of them to you every week, on Friday, for a new, sometimes fun, sometimes serious way for Doing Jewish.

  • Here's what Rabbi Daniel Pernick of Beth Am Temple has to say about his d'var Torah this week. Noah was a righteous man in his generation.
    Even in HIS generation or EVEN in his generation?

Community impact

THANK YOU everyone! You helped Federation fill these food boxes so Rockland Jewish Family Service could give them out to 275 Rockland families. You're all heroes! THANK YOU for helping Federation help our community.
