Hear some of our passionate volunteers answer the question, "Why Federation?", and discover how hearts and lives are changing everywhere.
You can connect with professionals in the business, legal and medical fields by joining one of our Federation affinity groups. Making personal connections to like-minded professionals at affinity networking events can be invaluable to your professional life, and allows you the opportunity to impact the lives of Jews in need through your involvement with Federation.
Jewish Federation offers many ways to connect with peers through affinity groups -- whether philanthropically, socially, or professionally. Our groups promote fellowship, learning, volunteerism, and philanthropy allowing like-minded professionals to support Jewish causes here and abroad. Donors can participate in networking, enjoy social interaction, and work in concert for the benefit of the Jewish community.
Members of the Maimonides Society and Cardozo Society that give $1,000 or more during the campaign year are recognized as Society Builders.

The Maimonides Society is committed to be at the forefront of Jewish education, networking, philanthropy and social action for members of the healthcare professions. The Maimonides Society is named for the great 12th-century Jewish physician and sage, Moses ben Maimon, also known as Rambam. Maimonides' major contribution to Jewish life remains the Mishneh Torah, his code of Jewish law. This code became a standard guide to Jewish practice and served as the model for the Shulchan Aruch, the 16th century code of Jewish law. He also wrote the Guide to the Perplexed, one of the great philosophic statements of Judaism, and the Book of Commandments (Sefer haMitzvot), a compilation of the Torah's 613 commandments. However, the only mitzvah that Maimonides ever refers to in his writings is that of tzedekah. Source: Joseph Telushkin, Jewish Literacy. NY: William Morrow and Co., 1991.
