ABOUT US

The Iranian American Jewish Federation of New York, Inc. (IAJF) is a community based 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization with a global outlook.

Since 2001, IAJF has enabled Iranian Jews in the Greater New York area to collectively address matters pertaining to our local community and the State of Israel.  IAJF represents the local Iranian Jewish community as needed, both in our area and to the world at large. 

Over 20 years, IAJF has raised $63 million dollars to support over 215 organizations and humanitarian causes in various areas including health and first aid, programming for IDF soldiers, educational and social programs, and relief for the needy and victims of terror.

IAJF also takes initiative in times of crisis, such as natural disasters or the more recent COVID pandemic, to provide emergency support and relief to those in need of aid.

Driven by our shared heritage, a deep and meaningful connection to the State of Israel, and a passion to empower those who are struggling, IAJF works every day to build a brighter future. 

Our vision doesn’t stop here; we aim to cultivate and ensure a brighter future for our community, for Israel and for the world.   Our active, committed and inspiring Young Leadership Division is the next generation providing countless innovative and engaging programs and initiatives to young adults in the Greater New York area.
