Welcome to the Westchester Jewish Council
Here when you need us… 
Yesterday, today, tomorrow.

We connect, convene, and safeguard Westchester’s Jewish communities and strengthen relationships among Jews and our member organizations, all of Westchester to Israel, Jews and our member organizations to our elected officials, and Jews and our member organizations to other ethnic and faith-based individuals and organizations, as well as to the community at large.

Remote Learning/Engagement/Connecting Opportunities open to YOU

In order to connect with the community during these challenging times, we have changed our Community Calendar to incorporate remote learning and engagement opportunities.  All events (which are highlighted in gold on the calendar) are open remotely to all members of the community and are provided by Westchester Jewish Council member organizations.  Please click the box below to access the Community Calendar for these remote opportunities.  We hope this service will help to connect everyone during this period of social distancing.  If your organization has an event to share, please post it to our community calendar or be in touch with our office and we will be sure to include it. (If you do post, please be sure to click “Remote Learning” in the category section.)  Thank you for your help in making our community continue to feel connected.
