JNOLA’s mission is to attract and engage an active, young professional Jewish community in the Greater New Orleans area and develop Jewish participants and leaders. We provide the next generation with opportunities for professional networking, community service, educational and social engagement while celebrating our Jewish identity, unique traditions, and the future of Jewish New Orleans. JNOLA is part of the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans, and is made possible through the generosity of the Oscar J. Tolmas Charitable Trust.


JNOLA services community members between the ages of 21-39. JNEXT serves community members in their 40s and 50s.
