A Message From 2018 Annual Campaign Chair Phil Bloom

Annual Campaign


 The Jewish Federation of Greater Harrisburg works together with you to meet the needs of our community ... from critical social and humanitarian needs to ensuring a rich Jewish life here in the Susquehanna Valley.


Our fund raising efforts are led by a committed group of local volunteers and the support of the Federation's professional staff. Every effort is made to meet face-to-face or talk to by phone each member of our community to give them an opportunity to perform the righteous act of tzedakah.


Funds are raised annually to support the important programs and services offered by the Jewish Federation such as scholarships to the Brenner Family Early Learning Center and JCC Camp, Jewish education, Senior Adult Club and so much more.

For questions about the Annual Campaign and Societies, please contact Oren Yagil, Director of Development, Marketing and Communications, 717-236-9555 x3299.

For questions about your account, please contact Beth Romano, Director of Information Systems, 717-236-9555 x3204.

Super Sunday

Super Sunday is one of the longest running events at the Jewish Federation of Greater Harrisburg. Every year dedicated volunteers give their time and effort to ensure a successful program by making calls to our great community members in order to support the Federation’s successful programs and outreach for the Jewish community. This year, you can help by volunteering or simply picking up the phone on Sunday, January 28 from 9:00am to 2:00pm.  Email Oren to volunteer!

“Super Sunday is usually within a few days of Tu B’shvat, the Jewish ‘New Year for Trees,’” Super Sunday Co-Chair Emily Freeburn said. “We see a lot of intersection between these two events.  Of course, you can’t have a New Year’s without a starting point.  With Super Sunday, we are planting the seeds to help to continue this great community, so that we can continue to revitalize and grow for years to come.”

There are multiple ways to give this Sunday. You can make your donation online at jewishharrisburg.org. You can stop in and drop off your donation. You can also pick up the phone and chat with one of our wonderful, dedicated volunteers.

Your donations help support the important programs and services offered by the Jewish Federation such as scholarships to the Brenner Family Early Learning Center and JCC Camp, Hebrew High, Jewish Education, Leadership Development Cohort, PJ Library, Senior Adult Club, and so much more.
