About Neighborhood Groups

Neighborhood Groups are where members of JFREJ build relationships with other members, learn about a range of political and cultural topics, and take action together — all in our local neighborhoods. Over the last four years, over 1,500 JFREJ members have participated in neighborhood groups across the city.

In that time, we've built deeper relationships with our neighbors, continually studied the challenges, stakes, and opportunities of our political moment, and taken more and more action together through our core campaigns and in local elections. These groups have become a central home-base for the majority of our members—both new and long-standing—with dozens of leaders continually developing their organizing skills each month.

Neighborhood groups are for JFREJ members, so join or renew today in order to participate! Dues are suggested at $5 a month or $36 a year, sliding scale. Neighborhood groups are also only designed for members living within the five boroughs of NYC. If you live outside of that radius, we're really sorry we don't have neighborhood groups in your area! Please check the events page for events you can participate in virtually that aren't restricted by geography.

North Bronx Neighborhood Group Meeting & Sukkot Potluck, 2021

JFREJ neighborhood groups have the potential to be powerful sites of mutual aid, learning, community-building, action and rapid response, and partnership between local elected officials and the progressive Jewish community. When we are organized and politicized at the local level and connected to the communities we live in, we will have the power to advance our transformative vision for a city and state where everyone has the resources and care they need in order to thrive.
