Bringing community together
Informative, engaging and overall, inclusive of all backgrounds, Federation CJA is your hub for Jewish life on the West Island.
Well known for caring for the vulnerable members of our community, but Federation CJA’s work extends to the rest of our community, too. Whether you’ve been to Jewish school, Jewish camp, received a PJ library book, or used an Ometz placement service; you’ve been touched by Federation CJA.
We also host a variety of programs geared towards teens, young adults, and families with younger children, and various events geared towards building relationships and connecting.
Connect. Get involved. Develop relationships. Be active in your community. Whether you want to be volunteer, you’re on a path to leadership, or just want to meet other community members; Federation CJA is your portal. Read about our YAD opportunities, the Yom Ha’atzmaut celebration, and TOP (Teen outreach program) . And be sure to check out the next happening at the West Island Federation.

Federation CJA’s West Island campus annually hosts a community celebration on Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day. If you’d like to volunteer or participate in this year’s festival, click here for more information.
The Teen Outreach Program (TOP) is designed for grade 7 and 8 students living in the West Island. TOP provides hands on experience in the Montreal Jewish community and fosters growth through leadership training, team building, public speaking, social advocacy and volunteerism. TOP interns meet monthly to plan events, develop leadership skills, and learn from top-notch guest speakers, all while completing their mandatory community hours.
Volunteerism is the lifeblood of our organization and the foundation on which our community stands. Tikun Olam Volunteers is a hands-on volunteering experience and an opportunity to help those who depend on Federation CJA and its family of agencies to improve the quality of their lives. TOV offers people short-term volunteer experiences that engage them with their community in a meaningful way. For more information contact 514.624.5005.
