Why the Jewish Federation?
Do you know someone who has lost a job or is struggling to pay rent and put food on the table every month? Do you know someone who is caring for a relative with Alzheimer's or has a child with special needs? The Jewish Federation of Broward County supports over 30 agencies that assist individuals when they need it the most. Money raised from the Annual Campaign is distributed each year to help address the most pressing needs of Jewish communities locally and in Israel.
