The Jewish Federation is all of us—the members of our community—working together to repair the world and to keep Jewish life strong and thriving.
Our Annual Campaign raises funds that support the charitable, educational, cultural, and social service needs of Jewish people in Howard County, Israel and around the world. Your donation helps us to provide support for current needs of our Jewish community while building a better Jewish future.
