Welcome to the Jewish Federation of Dutchess County

The power of the Jewish community to improve lives

 


 

The Jewish Federation of Dutchess County addresses the most critical needs of the Jewish community. We ensure a vibrant, caring, connected, and enduring local Jewish community. Globally we work with international partners to foster dynamic connections with Jews around the world, strengthening Jewish peoplehood, and taking care of those at risk.

 

With a long tradition of compassion and tikun olam, the Jewish Federation of Dutchess County maximizes the collective impact of Klal Yisrael. We read the broad Jewish landscape, identify current needs, and make plans to serve future ones. We raise and allocate funds that have impact broadly and deeply. Every donor who contributes to the Federation takes care of the vulnerable, builds and nurtures Jewish identity, advances local Jewish interests, and contributes to a strong and secure Israel and global Jewish world. Join us.
