Our Mission


We Are Jewish San Antonio

The Jewish Federation of San Antonio is the coordinating and convening body dedicated to building Jewish community, to nurturing the quality of Jewish life, and to securing a favorable Jewish future in San Antonio, Israel and worldwide. Inspired by Jewish religious teachings, Federation embodies a primary commitment to klal yisrael (the responsibility of each Jew for another), to tzedakah (justice, charity, and righteousness), to tikkun olam (the process of repairing the world), and to the centrality of Israel to the Jewish people. In partnership with other Jewish institutions, the Federation promotes the advancement of Jewish learning and culture and seeks to perpetuate the values, practices and religious traditions that enrich Jewish life.
