Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia
The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia was founded as the Federation of Jewish Charities in 1901, uniting nine agencies into a single effort to help the Philadelphia Jewish community. Since its creation, it has grown steadily, expanding its range of services to help Jews in Greater Philadelphia, in Israel and throughout the world.

For more than a century, the Jewish Federation has been proud to Carry the Light for Philadelphia by embracing three key roles: convening the community, encouraging and stewarding the generosity of our donors, and making grants to meet critical needs. By mobilizing our combined resources, making everyone feel included, and strengthening our values and traditions, we ensure that all of us can enjoy meaningful Jewish journeys.
