Live Generously, with the Memphis Jewish Federation

We can all Live Generously, no matter who we are or what we have. Giving is not just about making charitable donations — it is about giving your time, effort and spirit. Every day presents a fresh chance to do a mitzvah, get involved and discover new opportunities. When you Live Generously through acts of kindness you get the most out of life.


Be a part of something extraordinary by being active within Memphis Jewish Federation and in your community. Jews throughout the world are claiming their seat at the table by establishing a lifelong legacy of service through their commitment to tikun olam (healing the world).
