The Jewish Relief Agency (JRA) mobilizes volunteers to assist people in need. Founded in 2000 to provide support for struggling Jewish families, the agency has grown to serve nearly 6,000 diverse low-income individuals throughout Greater Philadelphia. 

JRA’s work is fueled by our volunteers who pack and deliver food and provide aid and comfort in a variety of ways. All of our volunteers, Jews and non-Jews alike, are united by a common commitment to help those in need and strengthen community. Through community service, JRA nourishes body and soul.

JRA is an independent 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. JRA works in partnership with, and is supported by: the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, United Way, SHARE, Philabundance, and more than 400 other community organizations, as well as financial contributions from generous individuals, foundations, and corporations.
