WHERE THE MONEY GOES

We work with a broad cross section of community lay leaders and solicitors to raise and distribute funds. We ensure that the programs, institutions and values that enrich our Jewish community remain vibrant and strong.

From feeding the hungry to helping the unemployed, from supporting families with special needs to funding Jewish education and Israel experiences, the Jewish Federation of Omaha addresses the most pressing issues facing our community every day.


The Jewish Federation of Omaha Impacts Jewish Lives


The Jewish Federation of Omaha Impacts Jewish Lives

In Omaha, Campaign dollars support the ADL/CRC, the Jewish Community Center, the Center for Jewish Life, Jewish Social Services including the Rose Blumkin Jewish Home, Jewish Family Service and Jewish Senior Services, as well as Federation programs such as scholarships for Jewish experiences, missions to Israel, Birthright Israel, our Partnership2Gether, grants for summer camps and Israel programs.                                                                                    

Along with improving Jewish life in Omaha, the Jewish Federation of Omaha also has a responsibility to Jews around the world. Approximately 1/3rd of our contributions go beyond our own community to rescue and revitalize Jews all over the world who are in peril and have nowhere else to turn.
