Israel and Overseas
Federation CJA is committed to Jews in Israel and around the world.
Federation CJA is part of the global Jewish partnership with Israel at its heart. Our relationship with Israel is not strictly one of donor to recipient, but is one of people to people. Our solidarity with one another is expressed through financial contributions, as well as various mutually beneficial personal exchanges that serve to educate, celebrate our culture and heritage, and develop a strong sense of identity.
In particular, Montreal’s Jewish community has fostered a connection with the people of Beer Sheva and Bnei Shimon through Federation CJA’s ongoing involvement in Partnership2Gether. This has been an exciting and rewarding opportunity to participate in the progress of the Negev, which is imperative for the security of Israel and critical as an outlet for the state’s internal growth.
