Who we are

The Jewish Foundation for the Righteous provides financial support to more than 600 non-Jews who rescued Jews during the Holocaust and preserves their legacy through a national education program.

The Young Associates Division (YAD) was founded to engage young adults while promoting and supporting the mission of The Jewish Foundation for the Righteous through community service, educational and social networking events. YAD's inaugural event in the spring of 2009 was attended by over 200 young professionals. Annually, YAD enjoys watching a Mets game at Citi Field. 

YAD members are offered Young Associates tickets to the JFR's annual dinner at a special price. Tickets to the dinner will be sold online through our website - signing up for YAD emails is the best way to find out when dinner tickets go on sale.
