What Are Federation's Key Priorities?
Social Safety Net
Following the guiding principle that all Jews are responsible for one another, Federation supports programs and services that bring help and hope to people of all ages and at all stages of life. Federation feeds hungry families, offers programming and companionship for lonely seniors, provides counseling for children and families, supports people with disabilities, distributes loans and grants to those facing economic hardship and so much more. Together, we lift up the most vulnerable so they can live with independence and dignity.
Education and Identity-Building Programs
While fostering connections to our history, heritage and traditions, Federation is ensuring a vibrant Jewish future. We help develop an enduring commitment to Jewish life and practice through formal and informal education, funding PJ Library, Jewish day school and summer camp scholarships, Israel programs, Hillels on college campuses and programs that enable young adults to bear witness to the devastation of the Holocaust and experience Israel for the first time. All of these create connections that last a lifetime.
Building, Strengthening and Securing Community
Serving one of the most diverse populations in the nation, Federation is a unifying force for a caring Miami Jewish community. Our Jewish Community Relations Council fortifies our community in the face of antisemitism and the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel and builds bridges of understanding with diverse community partners. Our Office of Community Security works with schools, synagogues and institutions to keep our people safe throughout Miami-Dade County. Through volunteer opportunities, educational events and missions to Israel, we bring together people of all denominations, interests and backgrounds for a common purpose: the greater good of the Jewish people.
