Safety net. Umbrella organization. 30,000-foot convener.

These metaphors are often used to describe Minneapolis Jewish Federation’s work in the community. It is not only our privilege to live up to these metaphors in a time of need—we see it as our responsibility.

And right now is a time of need.

Federation’s first priority is simple: ensuring our local Jewish agencies, synagogues, and schools can continue to do their important work—especially right now.

Support the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund today to help our community organizations:

  • recover from lost tuition or other membership fees
  • continue to pay their staff
  • do the critical work of making our Jewish community and/or
  • other urgent needs that arise.

As MJF CEO James A Cohen said, we’ve got our community’s back. And we need your help to continue to have the backs of our beloved community agencies.
