In our recent Greater Boston Jewish Community Study, we asked you to tell us who you are. Your answers revealed a beautiful and growing diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives.

You offered insights on what it means to participate in Jewish life and showed us that the size, characteristics, behaviors, and attitudes of our community have shifted dramatically since our last study 10 years ago. 

Now, we’re using the results of the Community Study, public forums, and polls to inform CJP’s new Strategic Plan. We’re re-examining our role as an organization and determining how we can have the greatest impact.

Donor support has allowed us to continue to meet our historic commitments. Together, we are developing strategies and partnerships to address our new challenges. We now look forward from a place of strength, and it is all because of friends like you.


“We support organizations that plan for the future by building on their history of success. For three generations, our family has invested in CJP because of the creative and effective ways they invite more members of our community to experience the richness of Jewish life.”

“For more than 100 years, our Boston Federation/CJP has helped solve our community’s most pressing and important problems. We support this work because we think it’s the right thing to do from a moral standpoint.”
