Local Jewish Life

The Greater Hartford Jewish community is comprised of approximately 32,000 people living in more than 30 towns surrounding Hartford, Connecticut’s capital city. We are also somewhat spread out! The Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford serves communities that are located in the Farmington Valley (JCC)  to "East of the River," including Manchester and Glastonbury. Downtown Hartford is also a great place to get involved; take your pick from tending a community or interfaith garden outdoors to attending events at the Charter Oak Cultureal Center.

Every month, thousands of people use the services available on the Zachs Campus at 333 Bloomfield Avenue in West Hartford, which is home to The Jewish Federation and Jewish Foundation of Greater Hartford,The Mandell JCC, Jewish Family Services, The Anya Rosenberg Kosher Food Pantry, the Jewish Historical Society, Hebrew Health Care and nearby Summerwood and Federation Homes senior communities. We are proud to have three Jewish day schools in the area as well as some of the most prestigious colleges and universities offering several Hillels and The Maurice Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies.

Our community also offers outstanding care and programming for adults and children with developmental disabilities as well as Jewish senior facilities, programs and residences.
