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.

Unite. Engage. Inspire.

We are St. Paul Jewish Federation and everything we do is thanks to supporters like you.

  • 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.
