Give Jewishly

The Young Leadership Division encourages support of the Annual Federation/UJA Campaign. Starting with our Chai Society at just $18 a month and our Tri-Chai society at $54 a month, it’s never been easier to be a philanthropist! Those who make a donation of $1,000 or more a year become members of the Ben-Gurion Society, a national donor recognition program created by The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA).

To learn more about our giving societies, please email Rachel Altfield.
