Volunteer Activities

Charity is a fundamental part of the Jewish way of life. Giving to the poor is an obligation in Judaism, a duty that cannot be forsaken, even by those who are themselves in need.


The JCC is committed to being an active and caring partner in the Stamford community.

Motivated by its mission to meet the ever-changing needs of the community and spearheaded by volunteers, JCares leads ongoing efforts to collect food and essential items to benefit children, families, those with special needs and seniors, along with organizing hands-on community service projects.

For more information contact JCares@stamfordjcc.org.
