The Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford serves a richly diverse Jewish population at all life stages who are engaged in many different, meaningful ways. Only Federation supports Jewish experiences of all kinds.
Our Greater Hartford Jewish community is comprised of approximately 32,000 people living in more than 30 towns surrounding Hartford, Connecticut’s capital city. Greater Hartford is mid-way between Boston and New York, about 25 miles from Waterbury, Connecticut and Springfield, Massachusetts, and an hour drive to the coastline or the Berkshires.
We’re a full-service Jewish community with a vibrant, thriving Jewish Federation, Hebrew Health Care, Mandell Jewish Community Center and Jewish Family Services. We offer the CHAI Center for Jewish Life serving the Farmington Valley, Jewish day and high schools, a Jewish Historical Society, kosher shopping and caterers, Israel activities, Jewish day camps and overnight camps, programs for people with special needs, and Jewish senior facilities, programs and residences.
Our Jewish community is strong enough to encompass all of Jewish life for ourselves, our children and our children’s children.
