What We Do

The work we do each day at Jewish Community Partners helps ensure a Jewish community that is CARED forCONNECTED, and ENGAGED in Memphis, Israel and around the world. We accomplish this by raising funds to meet the short and long-term needs of our community. Through education, planning, and community building our goal is to ensure that Jewish values, traditions, and connections are preserved for current and future generations.
