Mission & Impact

Mission Statement*

The Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans’ mission is to inspire members of our community to explore and share their unique Jewish identities by connecting to a vast array of opportunities to engage with our local Jewish community, with the Greater New Orleans community, and with Jewish communities in Israel and around the world.


The Federation envisions a connected and inclusive Jewish community that fosters spiritual, social, and philanthropic connection throughout Jewish life.
