THE ASSOCIATED: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore
THE ASSOCIATED: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore works to enhance Jewish life. It addresses charitable, educational, religious, humanitarian, health, cultural and social service needs of the Jewish community locally, nationally, in Israel and throughout the world.
Our continuing vision is of our people living and working together to experience the power and joy of Jewish life as active participants in a vibrant and vital Jewish community. We will realize our vision when we have a sustainable community that exhibits excellence in each of the following four areas:
• A caring community that lifts and empowers its most vulnerable members and extends a compassionate hand to those in need.
• An involved community that welcomes Jews of every age, in every neighborhood, wherever they gather, and offers them many ways to connect to their Jewish community.
• A learning community that encourages lifelong study through a wealth of high-quality formal and informal educational opportunities.
• A community that seeks social justice through commitment to the Jewish ideals of tikkun olam (repair of the world) and gemilut chasadim (acts of loving-kindness).
We believe that this vision for our community is absolutely achievable through careful planning by THE ASSOCIATED in partnership with the agencies we fund and the many other institutions that devote themselves to the enrichment of Jewish life in Baltimore—our community’s synagogues, schools, community centers, government, and so forth.
