Understanding Our Community

We are pleased to share the results of the Federation’s Demographic and Opportunity Study and our recent Eastside Marketing Survey. We look forward to having this data inform our community’s strategic direction over the coming years.

    The Power of Community

    We believe that no child should go to bed hungry. That every senior has the right to live with dignity. That all Jews should be able to live—anywhere in the world—without fear of persecution. That we can inspire the Jewish community of tomorrow. That’s why the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland focuses on helping people in need, rescuing people in danger, and keeping Jewish life strong.  learn more about the annual campaign
