The Jewish Renaissance Foundation (JRF) is a non-profit nonsectarian organization founded by individuals who feel compelled to act upon the teachings of the Jewish faith. We believe as citizens in a democratic society, we must respond to the needs of our neighbors and share our talents and resources. The JRF is committed to helping families, which are the basic unit of our society.
We believe in changing lives by creating hope and self-sufficiency, and we succeed by providing individuals, children and families with essential health and human services, community development and youth programs. Our life-improving services extend across all cultures and faiths, regardless of economic status.
