#vulnerable CARE FOR THE VULNERABLE
We transform the lives of those who are living below the poverty line, unemployed, elderly, abused and many others. Together we offer a hand to improve their quality of life, help them achieve greater independence and fulfill their human potential.
#Jewish #Identity NURTURE AND STRENGTHEN JEWISH LIFE, EDUCATION AND VALUES
We ensure that our youth have many meaningful opportunities to understand and explore their Jewish heritage, continuously working to strengthen the fabric of the Montreal Jewish community and ensuring it remains vibrant for generations to come.
 #Advocacy ADVANCE OUR COMMUNAL INTERESTS
Together with our local and national partners, Federation CJA works to advance our communal interests and create a greater understanding of our community’s unique contributions to society. Through our support of advocacy strategies, we defend our community in the face of anti-Semitism and efforts to delegitimize Israel.
 #Israel SUPPORT ISRAEL
Since Israel’s independence in 1948, Federation CJA has been an advocate for, and an ally to, the people of Israel. We are especially proud to partner with our sister region of Beer Sheva/Bnei Shimon and to invest in programs that affect real change to secure both the short and long term future of the Negev.
