The Jewish Federation of Greater Baton Rouge.



As the center of Jewish philanthropy and volunteerism in the Baton Rouge and surrounding area, we are a person-to-person, community-driven organization dedicated to the health, education, spiritual, and cultural identity of the Jewish people worldwide.

Through the Annual Campaign drive, and in partnership with United Jewish Communities, the Jewish Federation of Greater Baton Rouge raises and allocates funds to provide life-saving and life-enhancing humanitarian assistance to those in need, and to translate Jewish values into social action on behalf of the Jews in the area. Locally, the Federation supports a variety of agencies and schools. Additionally, funding provided by the Jewish Federation of Greater Baton Rouge impacts the lives of thousands of Jews and non-Jews.

There are many ways to contribute and participate in the vital work of this Jewish organization. We invite you to explore this website for opportunities that may be of interest and to contact us for more information.
