We fund and support a broad network of organizations that focus on two critical things:
1. Caring for people in need here at home, in Israel, and around the world.
2. Nurturing and sustaining the Jewish community today and for future generations.
For generations, Federation has enabled Jews to fulfill our obligation to take care of each other and to ensure our Jewish future. The Jewish Federation is all of us, the members of our community.
CULTIVATING JEWISH LEADERS: We are leading the charge for our next generation to come together as Jews. Young Jewish professionals participate in leadership development, philanthropy, social action, support of Israel, and meaningful connections through Our Jewish Orlando.
HERE AT HOME: There was a time when being Jewish was only about being part of an agency or a synagogue. Today it’s about connecting to the Jewish community, not just inside our institutions, but throughout all of sunny Central Florida. We have done a remarkable job transforming into a catalyst and a portal for all things Jewish in our community.
NOURISHING JEWISH LIFE:
The Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando’s Maitland campus provides a hub for Jewish life in Central Florida. More than 1,500 community members use our facilities to enhance their lives each and every day. Meeting the needs of Jews of all ages is a big job. And JFGO is up to the task.
ENGAGING JEWISH YOUTH: We are committed to helping young children build Jewish identity. Our programs help families strengthen their relationship with our Jewish community. From little ones to teens, families will find opportunities to grow together at JFGO.
CONNECTING OUR JEWISH WORLD: We have the demonstrated ability to carry out big, bold initiatives and mobilize great resources in times of crisis. We are part of a greater umbrella, the Jewish Federations of North America, which represents 155 Jewish Federations and more than 300 network communities, and raises and distributes more than $3 billion annually for social welfare, social services, and educational needs.
