Our Mission


Strengthening Jewish communities here, everywhere, always.

Our History


Since its inception, the Jewish Federation of San Antonio is dedicated to building a strong Jewish community in San Antonio and worldwide through its Annual Campaign and by providing quality opportunities for Jewish individuals and families.

Federation is the people who care enough to want to perfect an imperfect world. Federation is the passion of commitment, where tzedakah and a sense of social justice can make a difference in someone's life.

Our Role in the Community


In partnership with other Jewish institutions, the Jewish Federation of San Antonio promotes the advancement of Jewish learning and seeks to perpetuate the values, practices and traditions that enrich Jewish Life.


We support safety net services provided by Jewish Family Service, several adult and youth programs of the Barshop Jewish Community Center, as well as programs offered to our students through the Shmuel Bass Torah Academy of San Antonio and Hillel of San Antonio.


Our Impact 


Through outreach and engagement, we build a larger tent of committed Jews who have the passion, knowledge, and skills to lead us into the future. We help newcomers and others find their place in our Jewish community, develop young leaders and philanthropists, and strengthen our Jewish identity through Jewish education and our connection to Israel.


The Annual Campaign supports programs of the Jewish Federation, such as our Holocaust Memorial Museum, programs of the Jewish Community Relations Council, PJ Library & PJ Our Way, the Young Adult Division (YAD), Women's Philanthropy, LIFE & LEGACY®, and more!


And, through community planning, we help ensure a full array of programs and services to educate our children, provide for our seniors, support our most vulnerable, and finance and maintain community properties for the enjoyment of all. 


Together, we go from strength to strength here at home, in Israel, and around the world.
