To sustain and enhance Jewish Life at Home and Around the World.

About Us

Our tradition says kol Yisrael arevim zeh ba zeh—we are all responsible for one another. It is our privilege and great honor to support Jewish life everywhere, everyday.

When we say “about us,” it’s not just about Jewish Federation. It’s about the “us” of the Jewish community here in Kansas City and around the world. The collective good. We bring people together to get involved and invest in our community so that together we can have a greater impact. Jewish Federation partners with a number of local and global Jewish organizations, granting funds to these agencies for programs that serve people in need. By advancing the work of our partner agencies, we are able to create a meaningful and lasting impact throughout the Jewish community.

Through the power of your investments, and our network of partners, we help feed, clothe, comfort, and inspire people here at home and in more than 60 countries around the world. Each program we fund fits into one of our five areas of service:

  • Safety Net Services
  • Youth and Family Services
  • Senior Adult Services
  • Jewish Identity and Education
  • Israel and Overseas
