Jewish Federation and JCC Debut New Websites


The Jewish Federation and Jewish Community Center of Greater New Haven are excited to announce the grand opening of their new website.  Previously, the Jewish Federation and JCC had stand-alone websites built more than five years ago on separate platforms.  The new website incorporates both organizations under the same thematic roof.  In addition, the Jewish Foundation’s brand new website ( is scheduled to launch in January as well and will be directly linked to the other new sites.


“Our new website serves a number of important purposes for both the Federation and the JCC,” said Sydney Perry, CEO of the Federation.  “This is the first time since we merged in 2009 that we can truly share our story with people and really show, rather than tell, the myriad opportunities we provide for involvement.  The new site is a direct result of the Strategic Planning Initiative launched in September 2010, with its main priority being the improvement of communication and cooperation throughout the Greater New Haven Jewish community.  We have created a ‘Community’ section of the site to give Jewish organizations, synagogues, schools, and social service agencies an opportunity to increase their visibility—and to make it easier for all of us to share resources in our common mission of fostering a caring, vibrant Jewish community.”


The Federation will still have the same web address (, as will the JCC (  The big difference is in the many different ways the new sites can tell their organization’s stories and share information and how it’s displayed.  The new site will feature a more accessible calendar with a broader range of listings, more up-to-date-schedules, videos, slideshows, and blogs.


The Jewish Community Center is a community resource for art, education, fitness and social networking.  The 100,000 square foot facility is open seven days a week.  Programs, activities, and events include day camp, an early childhood learning center, aquatics, fitness programs, dancing, basketball, talks by best-selling authors, and discussions with well-known political figures.  More information available at: or (203) 387-2522.


The Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven strives to be the central organization and resource for communal planning, outreach and Jewish education in our region. The Federation raises funds to support beneficiary agencies, synagogues and other local and national organizations in Greater New Haven, Israel and worldwideMore:
