There are humanitarian emergencies here in greater St. Paul and all over the world affecting Jews and non-Jews alike. The Jewish Federation of Greater St. Paul, along with our beneficiary agencies, take seriously our ethical responsibility to ensure the welfare of all people. While there is still much to be done, our work on behalf of those in need has literally touched thousands and thousands around the globe.
One of the basic tenets of Judaism is that the elderly deserve deference and respect. With your help we provide funds to a continuum of services to the elderly, providing Jews over the age of 65 with social activities, healthcare, transportation to and from the doctor's office, housing, food and counseling.

Youth and Children At-Risk
The services provided by the Jewish Federation of Greater St. Paul and our agencies for youth and children are as varied as the children themselves, from camp scholarships to child care for low-income families to programs for children with special needs. Learn more
Families and Individuals in Distress
There are times in life when we need the community's support. It may be help finding a job, emergency money, food or shelter, assistance combating addiction, finding low-cost healthcare or resettling in a new country. The Federation is here for you through our funding of the Jewish Family Service of St. Paul. Contact JFS for help and with any questions you may have.
