Reimagining the Larry & Mary Greenspon Family Campus for Jewish Life


We are embarking on a new era of Jewish life in Sarasota-Manatee…a moment that will have significant impact on the generations that follow. With this redevelopment, our organization will be better prepared to meet the needs of our growing community and provide a variety of entry points, allowing individuals to express and connect with their Judaism—on their terms. Using data gleaned from our 2019 Jewish Community Study, our leadership is creating a campus that will allow for expansion of our current educational, cultural arts and social programs for all ages while also imagining innovative and creative ways to engage our Jewish community.

Our vision is a Larry & Mary Greenspon Family Campus for Jewish Life
where everyone belongs...JFED PROUD & STRONG!


Hear from our generous donors about the exciting plans for the future of the campus!
