Since our founding in 1940, the Federation has made significant investments in global Jewry. We mobilized the community to rescue and resettle Holocaust survivors in the 1940s and to help Ethiopian and Russian immigrants in the 1980s and 1990s. Today, we advocate for Israel, invest in services for Jews in need overseas, and foster people-to-people connections. Thanks to YOU, we are making an impact strengthening the bonds of friendship among Jews here at home, in Israel, and around the world. Our current programs include:
- Helping Jews in Need Overseas: Through our longstanding partnership with the Jewish Agency for Israel and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, and with direct funding, the Federation supports programs helping Jewish families in Israel and Jewish communities around the world obtain food, healthcare, education, and more.
- Israel Opportunities for Young Adults: We support life-changing, immersive Israel experiences for young adults.
- Israel Opportunities for Teens: Federation helps teens deepen their knowledge about and connection with Israel, through Israel Experience scholarships.
- Israel-Focused Community Events: The Federation works with Jewish organizations to organize community events that foster strong connections with Israel through educational opportunities, cultural offerings, and Partnership2Gether gatherings.
