About JFEC

About the Jewish Federation of Eastern Connecticut

The Jewish Federation of Eastern Connecticut is a not-for-profit 510©(3) corporation that supports humanitarian, social Service and educational efforts in eastern Connecticut, in Israel and worldwide. Locally, we provide direct services to seniors, adults and youth through a variety of programs and activities.

The Jewish Federation supports a variety of organizations through grants and allocations. It is the principal address for intergroup and interfaith relations in the region. Every year, the Federation organizes educational and interfaith missions to Israel and brings speakers from Israel to address the community. The Federation is the primary link between the State of Israel and the people of eastern Connecticut.

The Jewish Federation, as part of its educational efforts, works with public and parochial schools to promote the study of the Holocaust and the importance of taking individual responsibility for one's actions.

A lay Board of Directors and Officers governs the Federation.

The JFEC is a member agency of the United Way of Southeastern Connecticut.


Campaign for Community Needs: Our Annual Campaign raises money to help Jews at home, in Israel and around the world as well as our local community at large.
