It's time for the 2020 Annual Campaign and

we want to engage and involve every

member of our Omaha Jewish community.

Our goals are a 3% increase in pledges and 100 new gifts to build our donor base. In doing so, we recognize the Jewish Federation of Omaha Annual Campaign as the most significant way to make a difference in Jewish lives here at home, in Israel and around the world.

Through engagement, education and promotion, our community is made aware of programs and services available via campaign dollars and we recognize the Jewish Federation of Omaha as a meaningful and important place to invest one's time, effort and philanthropy.

As Jews, it is our responsibility to care for one another and for those less fortunate. A lesson taught from generation to generation, L'Dor V'Dor.  The Federation's Annual Campaign is about more than raising money. It is about helping people across our community fulfill the mitzvah of Tzedakah-the commandment to act righteously.

Money raised through the Annual Campaign benefits thousands of Jewish people in Omaha, across the United States, in Israel, in Argentina, in the Former Soviet Union, in Ethiopia, and in more than 60 other countries around the world by:
•    Feeding the hungry
•    Educating the young
•    Caring for the old
•    Comforting the sick
•    Counseling the troubled
•    Rescuing the oppressed
•    Providing a voice for those unable to speak
•    Offering vital assistance to those unable to meet their own basic needs
