Welcome to the Westchester Jewish Council website. Serving Westchester's 150,000 Jews since 1975, the Council helps our 160 member organizations connect, collaborate, and cooperate in order to maximize their potential. Besides connecting Westchester Jews, the Council also focuses on outreach to our neighbors in Israel as well as outside the Jewish community. Our mission is to reduce the "Silo Mentality" and allow organizations and individuals to cross-pollinate and partner with others. While we are individually strong, we can accomplish so much more when we come together and act as a true community.
Please feel free to drop me a line to share comments, suggestions, and ideas. If you or someone you know has a question, has an issue, or is looking to make a positive difference in Westchester, please contact me or Westchester Jewish Council Executive Director Elliot Forchheimer. Elliot and our professional staff will either be able to help or will connect you with someone in your local community who can help. Please feel free to drop me or Elliot a line to share comments, suggestions, and ideas. We'd love to hear from you.
Paul B. Warhit
President, Westchester Jewish Council
