Who We Are

At the Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee, we strive to strengthen Jewish life and identity in our region, provide for Jewish people in need, and promote support for Israel.

As one of the fastest-growing Jewish communities in the United States, we offer exciting programming and events where Jews of all ages can connect and engage with their culture and their peers in a safe, secure environment. We provide education grants, lead mission trips to Israel, work to fight antisemitism, and provide financial support to community organizations whose work aligns with our mission and values. 

We are focused on building the foundation for a strong, vibrant, secure Jewish future here in Sarasota-Manatee.
