Two Jewish federations in New Jersey will merge on July 1, they announced on Monday.

ThHe United Jewish Communities of MetroWest NJ (UJC MetroWest) and the Jewish Federation of Central NJ (Central NJ) will become the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ (Federation).

“We are thrilled that our two communities are becoming one greater federation: the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ, and we look forward to an exciting and stronger future together,” said UJC President Lori Klinghoffer, who will continue to helm the new entity.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and other state and local dignitaries are expected to participate in the launch event set to take place July 31. In recent years the federation network has been trying to increase efficiency in response to changes in the Jewish community that have precipitated a drop in overall fundraising efforts.
