Jewish New Orleans to partner with St. Bernard Project on Sunday, August 9 for day of service

Jewish tradition requires that all who inhabit this earth must also repair it - the value of tikkun olam, which translates from Hebrew to “repairing the world.” The term has come to reflect the pursuit of social action and volunteerism.
 

We hope you’ll consider helping the Greater New Orleans Jewish community and St. Bernard Project as they partner to continue TikkuNOLAm right here in our community, on Sunday, August 9 as volunteers fan out across Orleans Parish to rebuild homes. Click here to learn more.

Statement from the Jewish Federation on the shooting at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston:

We stand with the people of Charleston, the city's faith community, and the congregants of the Emanuel AME Church today as they confront the most horrific of acts - the hateful slaughter of nine in a holy sanctuary. Hate crimes attack individual victims and entire communities. They are meant to isolate and terrorize. The Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans stands for an inclusive and pluralistic community, one that cherishes life. Racism and hate violence have no place in our society.

 

Together we pray for an end to violence and wish comfort for all those affected by yesterday’s tragedy.

Federation announces launch of Strategic Impact Fund

The Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans is excited to announce the launch of its new Strategic Impact Fund. All Jewish organizations, including synagogues, in the Greater New Orleans area are welcome and encouraged to apply for grant up to $5,000 for programming that addresses one or more of the community priorities listed on the application. Applications and supporting materials are due on Wednesday, August 12. Click here to download the application.
