Connect with Purpose During COVID-19

Welcome to Federation’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resource Center! During this season of uncertainty, our partner agencies, organizations, synagogues, and schools across DC, MD, and Northern Virginia are coming together to create opportunities to connect, learn, and support each other. Whether you’re looking for a way to engage with ritual or spiritual content; resources to share with your family; entertainment, virtual volunteering, or learning opportunities, we are working to ensure that everyone can engage and thrive Jewishly.

Together, we will continue to connect with purpose through virtual spaces – even when we cannot connect in person.

Have great Jewish virtual resources to share? Submit them here. For virtual events, please submit them through the Jconnect submission form. (You will need to log into your Jconnect account).

When you feel overwhelmed, uncertain about your options, or in need of support, Federation, JSSA, and our network of local human service organizations are committed to making it as easy as possible to access available support and assistance. With one call to 703-J-CARING (703-522-7464), residents of DC, MD, and Northern VA will reach a trained professional who will connect you with the right providers in our robust partner network, giving you access quickly to the services and support you need. 703-J-CARING is accessible Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM, and all calls are confidential. Everyone deserves care. Learn more and find support at 703-J-CARING.
