We believe no Jew should ever feel alone.

We ensure the lasting presence of an inclusive, vibrant Jewish community in St. Paul.

We unite people to care for the most vulnerable in St. Paul, Israel and 70 countries. We provide pathways to engage in Jewish life, and we inspire leadership, philanthropy and initiatives that deliver impact for our community.

  • Caring for Jews

    We are a safety net for people most in need. Through our network of partner agencies in St. Paul, Israel and overseas, we provide comfort and care for the elderly, emergency assistance for distressed families, immigrant aid, education, and community security.

  • Building Community

    We want all Jews to feel welcome and excited to live in St. Paul! We create opportunities to engage in Jewish life for Jews of all backgrounds and ages. We foster new ways to embrace Jewish life and help people make enduring connections to Israel.

  • Investing in our future

    As the central address for responding to community issues and needs, Federation drives change and supports efforts that deliver impact for our community. We do this by developing new leaders, inspiring philanthropy and facilitating innovative community projects.


Safeguarding our community

We are deeply relieved that the hostages at Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville, 

Texas are safe. Rabbi Charlie Cytron-Walker credited the security training he received for his heroic escape with fellow congregants. In our community, Federation supports security training through our partner, Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas (JCRC). Since 2018, JCRC security staff have conducted more than 70 security consultations with Jewish community institutions throughout Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota. They also provided more than 100 security trainings and presentations (including information about the threat environment facing the Jewish community) for over 50 institutions in Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota. In the first six months of 2022, the JCRC plans to deliver 15 trainings in partnership with law enforcement and security experts. If you are interested in making a special gift to support community security, contact Dan Mogelson at dmogelson@stpaulfed.org or 651.695.3185.
