Thank you for your support. Your UJA donation will fund our community's vital programs and services.

NEW FOR 2020 – Jewish Together Fund

Our community has shown incredible strength during 2020, but many organizations still have financial needs that are more than our annual UJA campaign can support. To offer additional assistance this year, we have created the Jewish Together Fund (JTF). JTF will be funded using 50% of the increased portion of every donation that is over and above the 2019 amount.

Applications for funding from JTF will be offered to all local Jewish organizations later this fall.

Dear New Year...

Across our community, at home and around the world, many of our brothers and sisters are struggling.
