Annual Campaign for Jewish Needs
 

At the Jewish Federation of the Lehigh Valley, we support a comprehensive network of organizations that care for people in need here in the Lehigh Valley, in Israel and around the world and nurture and sustain the Jewish community today and for future generations.

We are on the front line

We bring security and stability in Israel and around the world.

We are a lifeline

for the millions of Jews that find every day a struggle.

We instill Jewish values

By supporting the Jewish Community Center and Jewish Day School and programs like PJ Library.

We bring people together

to build a vibrant, engaged and welcoming community.
