90 Years Of Federation Leadership – The Federation, founded in 1926, has as its cornerstone the centuries old belief that social justice (Tzedakah) is a community responsibility. In practice, this means that each Jewish person has the duty to help other Jews – one responsible for the other – one family, one community, one people. Today there are more than 300 volunteers and 2,000 contributors involved in The Federation, dedicated to strengthening our own community and establishing a secure and vital future for Jewish life worldwide. We are mindful of our past and thank the leadership listed, whose tireless efforts created a strong foundation rooted in our core Jewish values.
