Mission: The mission of the Jewish Federation of Delaware is to mobilize the Jewish community to address issues, meet needs and build an agenda for the future. The Federation fulfills its mission by: raising funds that will meet mutually agreed upon goals; allocating and managing community resources based upon the community agenda; developing leadership; fostering identification with our Jewish teachings and heritage to inspire an informed and involved community; and providing a structure for the Jewish community to interact with the non-Jewish community.
Results: The 2016 Campaign raised $1.36 million thanks to the generosity and support of our community.

I am enormously grateful to Seth Katzen, the talented team of staff and volunteers at Federation, and to the Federation Community for their important work and dedication. As a relative newcomer, I was so appreciative of the warm and gracious welcome I received upon moving to Delaware. Federation provides the community with much-needed resources and incredible learning opportunities.
