  • Hanukkah Lights

    Thank you for making our 2014 Hanukkah Lights program such a success! This year, we delivered toys, coats, boots and other winter gear to over 95 children - a 51% increase over last year's numbers!! This was truly a community effort, with support from Bet Ha'Am, Temple Beth El, Levey Day School, the JCA Preschool and an array of Havurah groups - as well as many families and individuals. Our recipients were overwhelmed by your generosity. Thank you so much, and Happy Hanukkah!

Welcome to the Jewish Community Alliance of Southern Maine

We enhance and promote Jewish Life and continuity locally, in Israel & throughout the world by providing & supporting diverse programs & services

Life and Culture

Central to our mission, the JCA offers community educational and social programming which brings people together who may not otherwise meet.

Youth and Family

Our youth and family enrichment programs promote Jewish values and traditions and provide a place for people of all ages to grow, learn and play in a safe community environment.

Jewish Family Services

JFS and its earlier incarnations have been an integral part of this community for over 100 years. Our programs continue to meet compelling, immediate needs in ways that demonstrate our commitment to gemilut chasadim (acts of loving kindness) in the service of tikkun olam (repairing the world).

Annual Campaign

We are proud to support organizations in Israel and overseas as well as locally via allocations from our Annual Federated Campaign.
