Here for You. Here for Good.


This has not been an easy year. Our world has been challenged and changed in so many ways. But through adversity and uncertainty, we are presented with new opportunities to rededicate ourselves to what matters most: to embody our commitments and rely on our deepest values to help us navigate the way. Now more than ever, each of us must step forward to strengthen our community.  At the Jewish Community Alliance of Southern Maine (JCA), building and supporting a strong and vibrant community is and always has been our mission. No matter the circumstances, we are here for you, and we are here for good.


The JCA is the central hub of Jewish life and learning in our community. It is where philanthropy, volunteerism, and shared commitment come together to make a difference. Here in Maine and around the world, the JCA helps ensure that our Jewish values are made manifest.


We convene the community in person and virtually. We fundraise for the world. We raise up new leaders. We kindle passion for Jewish learning. We preserve our history. We educate. We care for those in need. With funds raised each year through community events, outreach campaigns, mailings, and personal conversations — a network of more than 20 organizations and initiatives devoted to helping Jews and our community at-large are supported by the JCA. We focus on important community priorities that uplift, enrich, and improve the lives of Jews in Maine, Israel, and more than 70 countries around the world.

Please consider a gift to the JCA Annual Campaign this year. No matter the size of your donation, your collective support ensures the J’s ability to be here for you — and here for good — always.


The 2020 Annual Campaign will offer critical support to communal organizations and initiatives facing challenges on a scale unlike any we have seen in our lifetimes.

Established through a lead gift of $25,000 by Rachael and Justin Alfond, this giving society will perpetually recognize donors of any giving level who double their gift during the 2020 Annual Campaign. Those who step forward today embrace hope for the future, and ensure the ongoing strength of this amazing community.
