What We Do

For more than 80 years, the Jewish Federation of Greater Binghamton has been the cornerstone of Jewish life in the Southern Tier of New York.  We serve the local Jewish community as a financial, cultural, educational and unifying resource. Through the compassion and generosity of our donors, we raise and allocate the funds that provide critical support to our local institutions, our neighbors in need and for Jewish people worldwide.

Our Mission

The Jewish Federation of Greater Binghamton strives to create a caring, vibrant, enduring community locally, in Israel and worldwide.  The Federation uses its assets and contributions to strengthen local Jewish institutions and organizations, to support Jewish people in need, and to educate the people in the Southern Tier about Jewish values and identity.
