Who We Are
To sustain and enhance Jewish life at home and around the world.
The Jewish Federation inspires generosity, improves lives and strengthens our community, within a framework of Jewish values.
What We Do
The Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City works with the Kansas City community to raise funds for programs through five areas of service:
Safety Net Services
The Jewish Federation funds programs locally and around the world to help Jews live in dignity. From feeding the hungry and providing emergency assistance through our Gesher Fund, to raising money for the Joplin tornado victims, the Jewish Federation is here to help in times of crisis. (learn more)

The Jewish Federation provides funding for programs that help young children and families stay active and engaged in Jewish life. (learn more)
Senior Adult Services
The Jewish Federation works to ensure that seniors are able to maintain the highest possible quality of life, at any stage. Our programs give seniors the ability to remain in their homes longer, ensure their basic needs are met, and provide high quality care for those in their latter years. (learn more)
Jewish Identity & Education
The Jewish Federation funds programs that help Jews connect to and learn more about their Judaism—at any age – in Kansas City through programs like BBYO and Ayeka to overseas through Taglit-Birthright Israel, and MASA Israel. (learn more)
Israel & Overseas
In addition to providing for the most basic needs of Jews overseas, the Jewish Federation works to rekindle and revitalize Jewish life around the world. Examples of this include supporting programs that re-introduce Jewish education in partner countries Romania and Bulgaria, and bringing Israel to Kansas City through our Israel emissary. (learn more)
