Annual Community Campaign


The Community Campaign affects thousands of lives in so many ways. We all have a story about the role Federation plays in our lives. Though each of us arrives at this story differently, there is a common thread in our community that connects us all. Read stories from our community members.


For almost a century, Memphis Jewish Federation has been building community and helping to make the world a better place. We look at the community as a whole. This way, one donation supports the needs and services that you are aware of as well as those that are less obvious but no less important. Such as:


  • Educating children so they build Jewish identities
  • Reacting when Jewish families are in danger or crisis
  • Caring for the elderly by providing them with medicine and food locally and around the world
  • Connecting new Memphians to our community
  • Empowering leaders so they can make a bigger impact
  • Airlifting to Israel endangered Jews in the Ukraine
  • Educating at risk children in Israel

Why Federation?

  • Right now, you can reach across the world and touch a life. How? Through Federation. You can put food on the empty table of an elderly couple in Ukraine, help a single mother who has lost her job and much more. You can bring hope to Jewish lives in Memphis, in Israel and in over 70 countries around the globe.
