Jewish Philanthropy of Upper Fairfield County

We raise funds and awareness for our partner organizations working to improve and save lives locally, in Israel, and around the world.

We also host fun and educational events in the Upper Fairfield County community.


We strengthen synagogues. We are the network that ensures there are thriving centers of Jewish practice across North America, Israel, and beyond that celebrate both tradition and contemporary life. Together, we demonstrate what an authentic and dynamic Judaism looks like, inspire people to be a part of it, and advance its critical role in the world.

My Jewish Learning

My Jewish Learning is all about empowering Jewish discovery for anyone interested in learning more. We offer thousands of articles, videos and other resources to help you navigate all aspects of Judaism and Jewish life — from food to history to beliefs and practices.

Our site is geared toward all backgrounds and level of knowledge. So whether you’re a Hebrew school dropout seeking a refresher on how to light the Hanukkah menorah or a synagogue president looking for a new perspective on the week’s Torah portion or a newcomer contemplating converting to Judaism — we have something for you.

The Southwestern Connecticut Agency on Aging and Independent Living (SWCAA) is a place to turn when you need unbiased, accurate information to help meet the challenges of aging and disability in the community. Federal and State funding supports SWCAA's information specialists which in turn allows staff to refer based on what you need rather than who will profit. Many of SWCAA's services are provided for free or at a sliding scale. The information line, 800-994-9422 is available to everyone at no charge.
