It All Begins with You


We believe that no child should go to bed hungry. That every senior has the right to live with dignity. That all Jews should be able to live—anywhere in the world—without fear of persecution. That we can inspire the Jewish community of tomorrow. That’s why the Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester focuses on helping people in need, rescuing people in danger, and keeping Jewish life strong.
