The 2023 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 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 our shaliach (emissary), who will be joining us in September of 2022. We encourage families to celebrate Chanukah at our community Chanukah candle lighting and remember with the community at our annual Yom HaShoah commemoration. JCAL is a member of the Jewish Book Council. We will have 11 authors visit us, via Zoom and in person, during the 2022-2023 year. With your support, JCAL can make a difference.
