The Bernard and Etta Weinberg Family Fund of the Jewish Federation was established by Etta Weinberg during her lifetime and funded through her estate. It is one of our largest Restricted Endowment Funds.

The fund makes grants related to providing geriatric counseling and care management, services for adults ages 60+, and Jewish education, all of which were the focus of Etta’s philanthropy during her lifetime.

For Fiscal Year 2023, more than $750,000 in grants have been provided to the following eight local programs:

Geriatric Care and Elderly Services
  • Kaiserman JCC: Chapter 3:
    Live Well@Philly J
  • Abramson Senior Care:
    Senior Supportive Care Services Program
  • Jewish Family & Children’s Service:
    Community Service Collaborative
  • KleinLife & Abramson:

  • Moishe House:
    Russian Speaking Jews House
  • Makom Community:

  • Kesher Israel: JTeenCC:

“Mom hoped that services would be developed that would be broad enough to care for the men and women in this region and could eventually be expanded throughout the entire Jewish community.”
