Community Service


The Jewish Federation of Howard County partners with organizations within the greater Howard County and Maryland to create hands-on volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Volunteer sites have included Days End Horse Farm, Harmony Hall, and Grassroots Shelter. Step forward with the Jewish Federation of Howard County and join us for tikkun olam (healing the world)!

"I really enjoyed my experience with the Federation. I was especially motivated by the volunteer opportunities. I'm eager to participate in more community service projects, and think it's a great way to build on ongoing legacy!"
