Greater Miami Jewish Federation

About the Greater Miami Jewish Federation

For more than 75 years, the Greater Miami Jewish Federation has been a unifying force for Jewish community-building and philanthropy. We work to enrich the quality of Jewish life in Miami-Dade County by bringing comfort and hope to the vulnerable and by investing in programs that build Jewish knowledge, identity and peoplehood — ensuring the next generation of Jews.

The Annual Federation/UJA Campaign raises tens of millions of dollars each year to fund agencies locally — including Jewish day schools, synagogue religious schools and Jewish Community Centers, as well as numerous social-service programs to care for those in need in Miami.

Federation-funded agencies also work to advocate on important social issues and provide a strong foundation for Jewish life and identity-building on college campuses and in communities across the United States.

In Israel, Federation is effecting change and enhancing lives by helping to settle immigrants, assisting in times of crisis, and engaging in special partnerships with the cities of Yerucham, Pardes Channa-Karkur and Or Akiva.

Federation also supports programs in more than 70 other countries, aiming to combat anti-Semitism, provide a lifeline of vital services to the frail and vulnerable, rebuild Jewish communities, and help rescue and resettle those in peril. The vital work of these programs and agencies is coordinated by our long-time global partners — the Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI) and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), as well as other non-governmental organizations.

In cooperation with The Jewish Federations of North America (formerly UJC and UJA) and working in partnership with a network of local, national and international beneficiary agencies and programs, we touch countless lives each year.
