Get Involved


Whether you want to attend an event, make a contribution, work on a committee or participate in hands-on volunteerism, get involved with the Jewish Federation of Howard County.


Connecting with Jewish Federation is a simple way to get involved in Jewish life. The Federation touches so many parts of our Jewish community; synagogues, schools, social service agencies, youth programs and more.


There is something for everyone at the Jewish Federation of Howard County.
We hope to see you at one of our events soon!
