Federation Professionals

The Heart of What We Do

We believe in the Jewish value of tzedakah: giving charity to those in need.

At Federation, many of us remember the sound of a quarter clinking at the bottom of our childhood tzedakah box. Some of us are new to the concept of tzedakah. But every day—whether we’re submitting payroll, meeting with community members, making coffee, or designing an e-mail—tzedakah is at the heart of what we do.
