What the Federation does

In Tallahassee, Around the Globe

The Tallahassee Jewish Federation (Federation) plays three key roles to enhance Jewish life.

  • Federation undertakes initiatives to serve the local Jewish community, and also to help Jews in need in Israel and throughout the world.

  • Federation raises funds to pursue these goals.

Rabbi Hillel said, "If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?"

                                            --   Ethics of the Fathers, 1:14

הוּא הָיָה אוֹמֵר, אִם אֵין אֲנִי לִי, מִי לִי.
וּכְשֶׁאֲנִי לְעַצְמִי, מָה אֲנִי. וְאִם לֹא עַכְשָׁיו, אֵימָתַי
