The city of Rochester lies on the northern border of New York State and has about 1,000,000 residents, including the surrounding counties. It borders Lake Ontario and the scenic Finger Lake region and has many cultural institutions, parks, outdoor activities, and opportunities for shopping.

There are about 25,000 Jewish people in the Rochester area and they are a very vibrant community with multiple activities scheduled on any given day. There are 12 synagogues in the community. The Jewish Community Federation is the central planning, fund raising and community relations body representing this community of Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, and secular Jews. The Jewish Federation raises over $4,500,000 annually to support its own community programming as well as five local Jewish agencies and the programs of the Jewish Agency and the Joint Distribution Committee. Partnership 2000 has been an important program of the Federation since 2003. It is supported by the Federation's overseas allocation.

Learn more about the Rochester Federation and activities in the Rochester Jewish community at the Federation's website: Jewish Community Federation of Greater Rochester.
