    The Merrimack Valley Jewish Federation was created 25 years ago; a combination of organizations from Lowell, Lawrence and Haverhill. By joining together, MVJF leaders sought a stronger more impactful effort to raise funds for people in need worldwide, in Israel, and desired services in our local community.
