Welcome to the Greater Lansing Jewish Federation

The 2022-2023 Campaign is in full swing! Your donations will fund people in need around the world (especially Ukraine) and in the local community, sending Lansing area children to Jewish summer camp, and provide programming to bring the Greater Lansing Jewish community together.





Third ambulance delivered, on to the fourth!

We are proud to report we used your generous donations to get the third ambulance, fully-stocked with medical supplies, to Dnipro, Ukraine. Thanks to Lansing's own Ody Norkin and Steve Linder, who both went Bucharest to make this happen.

Thanks also to Marco Katz, who continues to give us his valuable help.

We are currently raising money for a fourth ambulance. We will give you details as we have them.
