Do not separate yourself from community.
The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee is RESPONDING to our new normal.
As the global health crisis is changing our world by the minute, we are READY to provide RELIEF for RECOVERY and the necessary
RESOURCES to get through this. Jews are a RESILIENT people and our spirit remains strong.
Below, you will find a comprehensive resource guide to help you and your family navigate this time at home.
These sites will give you the latest updated information on a federal, state and local level:
Are you in need of help locally? Do you need food? Or, are you in a position to help others?
We are working with our partners to make sure we are meeting the needs of our community while in crisis. As the heart of our local Jewish community, the Federation gathers and shares information, coordinates the response, and helps organizations in our community connect with each other — all with the end goal of helping to keep you healthy and safe. But we can’t do it alone. We need your support so we can do even more!
We have launched the STRONGER TOGETHER: Coronavirus Relief Fund. We are indeed Stronger Together!
