Memphis Jewish Federation offers the best opportunity to build a strong community and better life for Jews at home, in Israel and in communities throughout the world. We serve as the central coordinating, fundraising, strategic planning and budgeting agency for the Memphis Jewish community. In partnership with the Memphis Jewish Community Center, the Memphis Jewish Home and Rehab, Jewish Family Service, Plough Towers, Morris S. Fogelman Jewish Student Center at Hillel of Memphis, the synagogues and schools of the Jewish community, a rich fabric of services is available for Jews and non-Jews in our city.
Typhoon Haiyan Emergency Response
The Jewish Federations of North America are mobilizing a communal response to the super Typhoon Haiyan, which has wrought widespread destruction in the Philippines. More than 10,000 people are feared dead, with reports of ocean surges as high as trees. The central city of Tacloban on the island of Leyte is among the worst hit on the Pacific nation.
Memphis Jewish Federation has opened a mailbox to support relief efforts by the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC). JDC is consulting with local officials, the Filipino Jewish community and global partners to assess the evolving situation on the ground in the Philippines. Please send your donation to Memphis Jewish Federation and mark "Philippines Typhoon" in the memo line. 100% of monies raised will go directly to relief efforts.
You can make a donation online, by calling (901) 767-7100, or by mailing a check to our office:
