Who We Are

Since 1935, the Jewish Federation of Greater St. Paul (Federation) has been our community's central address for meeting Jewish needs -- responding to crises, fighting poverty, strengthening Jewish identity and promoting social justice.


In the Federation, philanthropy, volunteerism and shared commitment come together to make a difference and repair our world. As part of a continent-wide system, we have the capacity to reach millions of Jews in need with a social-service network unparalleled in the world. We take pride in working collaboratively with our beneficiary agencies, enabling them to perform their life-changing work.

Our Mission


The Jewish Federation of Greater St. Paul unites, sustains and enhances the St. Paul area Jewish community and strengthens bonds with Jewish communities in Israel and around the world. We fulfill this mission through financial resource development and planning, and by working in partnership with social service agencies, educational institutions and synagogues.
