ABOUT IAJF

  

Iranian American Jewish Federation of New York (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.  IAJF celebrates the accomplishments of the Iranian Jewish community and invests its resources to support communities in need, cultivate future leaders, and safeguard Zionist ideals. 

Since its establishment, IAJF has raised and allocated $63 Million 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.

Last May, during the war in Gaza, IAJF launched an emergency campaign in support of Israel. Thanks to the generosity of the Iranian Jewish community in NY, IAJF was able to raise and immediately distribute funds in support of residents of southern Israel, IDF soldiers on the frontlines, first responders, hospitals, and victims of terror, with one goal - to positively and urgently impact thousands of Israeli lives.

IAJF has been recognized for its excellent financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency by both Charity Navigator and Guidestar.
