The 2019 Annual Campaign is now accepting donations.
JCAL is Lancaster’s Jewish community. Young, not so young, seniors, students, affiliated with a congregation or not. And, the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) supports JCAL, Jews all over America and Jews around the world.
Locally, JCAL supports local seniors through JFS of Lancaster’s Senior Care program, and our students with religious school field trips, funding for immersive summer programs including Jewish camps and programs in Israel, as well as regional youth group weekend events. We bring Israel to Lancaster with Tzofim Friendship Caravan, a traveling music and dance troupe from Israel’s version of Girls Scouts and Boy Scouts. We encourage families to celebrate Chanukah at our annual community Chanukah dinner and to remember with the community at our annual Yom HaShoah commemoration. With your support, JCAL can make a difference.
