About Us

The Jewish Federation is the major instrument of Jewish philanthropy and engagement in Howard County. We are a community-driven organization committed to taking care of the needs of the Jewish people and building a vibrant Jewish future in Howard County, in Israel, and around the world.

 

Through our Annual Campaign, we raise and allocate funds to provide for those in need, including seniors, the unemployed, and other individuals and families who need our help. Additionally, the Federation provides programming for all segments of the population to ensure a Jewish community today and in the future.
