Your donation supports the Jewish community here in Michiana, in Israel, and around the world. We’re strengthening Jewish life every moment, every day, everywhere.
At this very moment, as you read this, the Jewish Federation of St. Joseph Valley is supporting, sustaining, and protecting Jewish life – as we’ve done for nearly 80 years.
We’re there the moment a child enters our campus on the first day of Camp Ideal and the moment they make their own challah to share with their family. We're there when our community comes together to support Jewish arts & culture, ensuring it has a home in our halls and theatres. And we’re also there for young adults, some who are just starting their journey into Judaism, and others who are returning to the traditions they grew up with.
In Israel, it is our annual campaign that powers Aliyah and absorption, ensures Holocaust survivors can live worry-free, supports at-risk youth and other vulnerable populations, cultivates a more equitable society, and connects North American Jews and Israelis.
Your donation in support of our 2024 Annual Campaign ensures our system and our international partners have the infrastructure in place to mobilize in times of crisis.
We are able to be in Israel immediately in times like this because we’re there day in and day out, all year long, thanks to the impact of the annual campaign.
But, as with any crisis, the needs of an emergency cannot be predicted ahead of time - which is why have also launched an emergency campaign to help provide the life-saving support on the ground.
Jewish Federations are responding, working with our core partners to support victims of terror, rebuild damaged infrastructure, and address the immense levels of trauma caused by this horrific attack.
