Welcome to the Westchester Jewish Council website. We work closely with our 130+ member organizations, which in turn serve the Jewish community of Westchester, the eighth largest Jewish community in the U.S. with nearly 150,000 Jews. Since its inception in 1975, the Westchester Jewish Council has become the central communicating, coordinating, convening, advisory and resource organization in Jewish Westchester. Through our work, 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.
To learn more about the important and exciting work of the Westchester Jewish Council, please feel free to explore our website and to reach out to me, our professional team, or any of our board members, LIKE us on Facebook, and make sure to join our mailing list to receive our bi-weekly newsletter.
