Jewish Federation of Cincinnati


Established 1896

Mission Our mission is to develop and connect leaders, contributors, organizations, and ideas to build
an inclusive Jewish community that helps people in need, supports Israel, and assures a vibrant Jewish future.


Serving Our Community The Jewish Federation of Cincinnati envisions an exceptional Cincinnati Jewish community, and through the community-wide strategic plan Cincinnati 2020, brings diverse groups together to build it. We raise money and use a volunteer-driven, transparent process to distribute it to the local, national, and global programs that need it most. We connect our community agencies with the leaders and expertise they need to thrive. And we work to protect Jewish security by educating the community and advocating for Israel. We do all of this to help people in need, create an engaged community, assure our Jewish future, and support the Jewish people in Cincinnati, in Israel, and throughout the world.
