Jewish Federation of Greater Houston
Serving the approximately 50,000 Jews in the Houston metropolitan area, the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston’s mission is to lead and mobilize the community to care for and enrich lives in Jewish communities locally, nationally, in Israel, and around the world. The mission is geared primarily, but not exclusively, to Jewish causes. Since its inception in 1936, the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston has raised more than $100 million through its Annual Campaigns. The Annual Campaign raised more than $14 million last year, benefitting a multitude of local, national and global partners, from Jewish day schools and camps to immigration assistance; from aid for Israel to aid for Jews in need locally and worldwide. Other programming includes sponsorship of mission trips to Israel, women’s philanthropy, young adult networking programs and comprehensive Jewish education.
