Israel and Overseas

We support and strengthen Jewish life wherever Jews live around the world. The global reach of Jewish Federations is unparalleled. Together, we’ve built and sustained programs in more than 70 countries, ensuring that Jewish communities everywhere are vibrant and resilient.


We create strong connections with Israel, our Jewish homeland, educate about the economic and cultural ties we share, support programs in struggling communities worldwide, respond to crises, and empower people to advocate for Israel.
