Guided by the Jewish values of Tzedakah (righteous giving), Chesed (loving kindness), and Tikun Olam (repairing of the world), we bring the Jewish community together to help those in need and to strengthen and preserve the Jewish people at home, in Israel, and around the world.
For more than 50 years, the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona has served as our community's coordinating body for fundraising, planning, and communal services. Federation helps sustain and improve the lives of people in Southern Arizona, Israel, and around the world; wherever the needs are the greatest.
Through a network of affiliated agencies, we help individuals and families, The old and the young, the unemployed, the homeless, the sick, the poor, and those who are persecuted or oppressed. In this way, Federation helps to fulfill a sacred Jewish promise which has shaped our culture for generations: the promise to build and care for our community here and around the world. Federation strives to meet the community's needs today, while planning for a dynamic and responsible Jewish future. Your participation in Federation and all of its activities will assure that future.
Federation Community Campaign:
The annual campaign is the lifeline of our Jewish community. Funds raised are distributed to local beneficiary agencies, as well as to United Jewish Appeal,which coordinates lifesaving humanitarian efforts for Jews in Israel and to 60 countries around the world. The Campaign also offers many opportunities for community involvement through its outreach programs, including the Tucson Maimonides Society (for physicians and dentists), and REAP (Real Estate and Allied Professions), and much more.
