Israel & Overseas

Strengthening Jewish communities worldwide has always been essential to Detroit Federation’s purpose.  Local connections to Israel and overseas communities are enhanced through people-to-people experiences in Detroit Federation’s missions and exchange programs.

Jewish Education

Federation places a high value on education—for old and young, in formal and informal ways, through classroom study and on the road—as a way to keep our Jewish Community connected and to educate our future leaders.

NEXTGen Detroit

Federation’s NEXTGen Detroit Department offers a wide range of opportunities for singles, couples and families to become connected to the Detroit Jewish community.

Women’s Philanthropy

Enabling women to link Jewish family life and communal life, and strengthening Jewish identity are key goals in Federation’s Women’s Philanthropy, which offers a vast spectrum of fundraising and educational programming throughout the year.


Step Forward is the name of our Annual Campaign, and it represents a call throughout Jewish Detroit to contribute to the welfare of our community. Every dollar Federation raises is an investment in the quality of Jewish life today and the potential for tomorrow.
