Who We Are

It is the mission of the Greater Lansing Jewish Federation to partner and collaborate with other local Jewish institutions to enhance Jewish life in the Greater Lansing community.  It is also our mission to participate as a member of the Jewish Federation of North America to protect and enhance the well being of Jews domestically and around the world.  To achieve its goals the JFNA supports the Jewish values of repairing the world (tikkun olam), righteous giving (Tzedakah) and Jewish learning (Torah).
