Who We Are

 

For more than 50 years, United Jewish Federation of Utah has served as our community's coordinating body for fundraising, planning, and communal services. Federation helps sustain and improve the lives of people in Utah, Israel, and around the world.

 

Through a network of partnering organizations, Federation builds and strengthens Jewish community; in Utah to our homeland, from the homebound to the homeless, from elderly Jews in Russia to North American teens discovering their birthright in Israel.

Federation is the heart and soul of North American Jewry's philanthropic and humanitarian activities. It embodies a 3,500-year-old tradition of caring that goes back to the giving of the Torah and sustains us in the bold pursuit of Jewish community, Jewish values and Jewish peoplehood. Federation is the people who care enough to want to perfect an imperfect world. Federation is the passion of commitment, where tzedakah and a sense of social justice can make a difference in someone's life.

 

Federation/JFNA Community Campaign


The Annual Campaign is the lifeline of our Jewish community. Funds raised are distributed to local partnering organizations, as well as to The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA), which coordinates lifesaving humanitarian efforts for Jews in Israel and 60 countries around the world. The Campaign also offers many opportunities for community involvement through its outreach programs, including the Jewish Community Relations Council, Utah Maimonides Society (for physicians and dentists), Utah Cardozo Society (for Lawyers), Young Leadership (for those ages 25-45), Women’s Division and national affinity groups.
