Who We Are

Throughout the years, the Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix has embraced its responsibility to strengthen and sustain a vibrant Jewish community and to meet critical needs here in Phoenix, in Israel and around the world. The Federation serves as a resource to the community by maximizing the impact of the dollars raised and by supporting organizations that make a difference in our community every day. We enable change, promote innovation, provide emotional and financial support, connect Jews to their identity and help our fellow community members in times of joy, struggle, and hardships.

 

We believe that no child should go to bed hungry, that every Jewish senior has the right to live with dignity, that there should be vibrant Jewish life in Phoenix and that all Jews should be able to live, anywhere in the world, without fear of persecution. We believe we have a responsibility to one another and to all mankind. We believe in our power to make a difference. And we believe that together we can make our world a better place.

What does the Federation do? We help people.

We are creating a better tomorrow – by helping those in need. With so much need in our community and in the world, it is special that we can create a better tomorrow.
