36 People continue to turn to the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater for help. And with the generous support of our donors, we continue to meet the needs of the most vulnerable among us – at home and around the world. Each donation and every volunteer hour helps to improve our Jewish world, often one life at a time. Whether it feeds a family in Bucharest or from our own Milk and Honey Closet (Food Pantry) here in Tidewater, you will have a part in giving someone the support they need at a time when they most need it.

With your gift, we help:
