• About the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston



The mission of the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston is to preserve and enrich Jewish communal life through innovative and visionary leadership that is responsive to Jewish communities locally, nationally, in Israel and around the world.



Our work begins in Houston, where we care for those who were flooded and for those who cannot care for themselves. But we reach further, to those beyond our own community who are living in Israel and in Jewish communities around the globe.


Good will, community and accomplishment enrich each of us. So celebrating the holidays with loved ones matters, as does sharing the traditions and the pillars of our faith.


All Jews are responsible, one for the other. So mitzvot matter, as well as reaching out when there is misfortune. When we see need in our community, we act as one, and there is no place on earth that is beyond the reach of our help.


We keep our finger on the pulse of needs and emerging issues, and keep the community informed. We pull together all who care, from philanthropists to worthy organizations to you, members of our Houston Jewish community. If it is crucial, promising, or destined to make a difference, we will make the facts known, and make it happen.


To continue that work beyond today, we must ensure that Jewish values and traditions are preserved through our children and young adults. Only through your generosity can we be assured that our community will survive and flourish in the future.



Your voice, your ideas, your participation and your donations make an impact. A single gift to the Federation supports all that matters to you. Support the Jewish Federation of Greater Houston.
