Our Jewish community has time and again shown how we rise to so many occasions. We invest in our children. We care for our frail elderly. We mend shattered lives. And we restore hope for so many through the support of vital social services. Together we do extraordinary things – which is why we come to you from time to time with programs and projects that are in need of your support.

Jewish Federation of Broward County 2016/2017 Annual Campaign
The Jewish people have been sustained for centuries by adhering to the values that no child should ever go to bed hungry; that every senior has the right to live with dignity; and, that all Jews should be able to live – anywhere in the world – without the fear of persecution. Our Annual Campaign is focused on helping people in need, rescuing people in danger and keeping Jewish life strong. Today, more people are turning to us for assistance more than ever before. At the exact moment you are reading this … a single mother is opening a bare refrigerator scrounging for something to feed her hungry, crying child. There is a frail elderly senior sitting in the dark because his meager fixed income could not afford to pay the electric bill. Help us ensure that no one who asks for help is turned away.
Please make a gift to the Annual Campaign.

Thank YOU for your commitment to the success and future of our Jewish Community.
