Jewish organizations partner for Thanksgiving food drive

Through the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans, the Jewish community is partnering with Tulane Medical School students for a holiday food drive for CrescentCare, a New Orleans clinic that offers comprehensive health and wellness services to the community, advocates for empowerment, safeguards the rights and dignity of individuals, and provides for the public.
Using our grocery list below, you can drop off your donation from November 9-30 at the Goldring-Woldenberg Jewish Community Campus in Metairie, and from November 16-30 at the Uptown JCC. Through the clinic’s New Orleans Children’s Health Project, your donations will support patients and their families, many of who are in a state of food insecurity that has significantly worsened due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Help our neighbors impacted by Hurricane Laura


The Jewish Federations of Greater New Orleans, Greater Baton Rouge, and North Louisiana have partnered to create a relief fund for our neighbors in areas impacted by Hurricane Laura. We are collecting funds for both short term and long term needs. The synagogues in both Lake Charles and Alexandria were badly damaged, and many Jewish residents of southwest Louisiana have lost their homes and businesses as a result of the the hurricane.


100% of ALL funds donated will be distributed to those in need.

  • Moving Mountains in Nepal

    The future looked bright for Mira’s family. They were saving up and had even added a new room to their modest home. Then the twin earthquakes of 2015 destroyed all their progress. By helping her tap into her passion for sewing, Federation partner JDC helped Mira lift her family out of a tent city and back into their home. Now, their future looks bright once again.
