Who is CJP?
Founded in 1895, Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) is the country's oldest federated philanthropy. In other cities, we are known as Federation, UJC or UJA - but in all places, we can take pride in our tradition of communal responsibility and generosity.
Throughout our history, we have found strength and inspiration in our tradition of compassion and justice.
We have worked together to care for people in need, to preserve Jewish learning and to enrich Jewish culture worldwide.
We have come together in every generation, in every circumstance to care for others, to give our children an education steeped in Torah, to rescue Jews around the world, to bring dignity and opportunities where none existed before.
