Guided by the Jewish values of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) and Tzedakah (righteous giving), the mission and purpose of The Jewish Federation of Raleigh-Cary are to mobilize human and financial resources to (a) support and strengthen our local and regional Jewish community and (b) to meet the shared obligations of our local community to Israel and international Jewry. Seeking to strengthen Jewish identity, the Federation serves as the facilitating force that connects generations, congregations and the unaffiliated alike.
Through its divisions, Jewish Family Services, Jewish Community Center, Jewish Community Relations Council, and Jewish Community Foundation, the Federation provides needed services and resources to our local Jewish community much of which is not offered by other Jewish organizations, including (i) professional counseling and other critical services to families in need (ii) athletic, educational and cultural programming for youth, adults and seniors throughout our entire community, (iii) advocacy and advancement of Jewish interests both inside and outside the Jewish community, and (iv) legacy gifts to build a strong Jewish community in generations to come. The Federation supports regional Jewish concerns through direct distributions to worthwhile agencies and causes. Support of Israel and international Jewry is accomplished through the work of The Jewish Federations of North America and through our special relationship with our Israeli sister city, Hadera.
