Welcome to the Jewish Federation of the Berkshires.

This is where the Berkshire Jewish Community comes together to improve lives and strengthen Jewish community across the Berkshires, in Israel and around the world, now and for future generations.

 

IMPROVING LIVES

From hot kosher meals to the homebound, care visits and social services in the Berkshires to food, clothing, medicine and healthcare for the most vulnerable Jews in the former Soviet Union, we are here to help.

SUSTAINING JEWISH COMMUNITY

From educational programming to holiday celebrations to the Berkshire Jewish Voice and community relations, we’re connecting people and strengthening Jewish life across the Berkshires.

PROMOTING JEWISH CONTINUITY

From free Jewish books for kids to Jewish education grants for schools and camp and Israel travel scholarships, we’re nurturing and engaging the next generation.

IN ISRAEL & AROUND THE WORLD

We fund innovative programs that combat poverty, fight anti-Semitism, connect people to their Jewish heritage and Israel, reignite Judaism & provide disaster relief.
