The local work of the Federation tends to the specific needs of our local Jewish community. The Federation serves as a center for Jewish resources for all stages and areas of life. This can most easily be used through our Community Resources page.
Jewish Film Festival
Federation provides underwriting and administrative support for the Baton Rouge Jewish Film Festival.
Holocaust & Tolerance Education Program
In partnership with The Advocate, the Federation provides funding for teacher and student education on the Holocaust and the need for tolerance. This program also sponsors the annual Community Holocaust Memorial Service and the Holocaust Memorial Essay Contest.
Hillel at Louisiana State University and University of Louisiana at Lafayette
The Jewish Federation of Greater Baton Rouge provides funding for programming and a part-time coordinator to encourage and support Jewish Life on the LSU campus. Federation provides increased funding to LSU Hillel and the Jewish Student Organization at University of Louisiana at Lafayette (ULL) to help support the incredible renaissance of Jewish Life that is taking place there.
Congregation B'nai Israel and Beth Shalom Synagogue Religious School
The federation provides funding for joint religious school events; including “Chanukkah Chappening” and “Purim Pandemonium” as well as for teacher development.
