Women’s Philanthropy: Engage, Travel, and Learn With Us

We offer you meaningful ways to make an impact on our Jewish community, and on your own life.

I love the women I have met, the programs I have attended, and
the opportunities I have been afforded—whether traveling on a mission
or learning about our history and values.” – Jodi Macklin

Experience a life changing opportunity to witness and be inspired by the role you play in supporting Jews locally and around the world. Join other women in our community for immersive overseas experiences that energize, connect, and inspire. Tour dazzling landmarks. Explore our history; partake in culture, food, art, and innovation. Visit Jewish communities of the past and celebrate modern-day Jewish renewal in Europe, Israel, and overseas while building community. Return with new friends and a new understanding of our impact.

How is your annual gift changing the lives of others right in our own community?

We offer you a close-up look at the work and initiatives our Jewish Federation funds with visits to our local partner agencies. You don’t need a passport to learn about how your investment with Federation is ensuring that we are making an impact locally. Spend a morning with other women and meet the change makers in our community.

What are the pressing issues we face here and in Israel? How do we use Jewish tradition, debates, and ideas to shape those conversations? We are partnering with the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America to give you the skills to learn and study with other women about contemporary issues, such as Jewish identity, partisanship, and our relationship to Israel. Our women’s salon series is wonderful opportunity to discuss current Jewish political times and to further inform our leadership and community engagement.

ORA (formerly Young Women’s Coalition)
Ora is a community of women in our 30’s and 40’s connecting through conversation and learning to strengthen themselves, their families, and our community. Join Ora’s monthly Coffee (or Cocktails) & Conversations sessions and other events. You’ll hear about Federation’s local and overseas work, and discuss the critical issues affecting our families and community. Together we are creating a more vibrant Jewish future.
