Our Mission


The Jewish Federation of Rockland County strengthens Jewish life and meets the critical needs of our local and global Jewish community. We do this by:

  • Advocating and educating on behalf of Israel, including fighting anti-Semitism and BDS
  • Convening the local Jewish community to take collective action whenever necessary

Locally, Rockland Federation’s efforts include PJ Library, Adult Jewish Education, and the Rockland Jewish Initiative, aimed at reenergizing synagogue life in the county.

Through our overseas partners, the Jewish Federation provides services in Israel and worldwide, wherever there are Jews in need. And in times of crisis, Rockland Federation is uniquely positioned to serve as a central point of assistance to coordinate funds, volunteers and donations and to work with our agencies to get help where it’s most needed, at home or abroad.

In Rockland and worldwide, Federation ensures a bright future for all.
