Supporting and enriching the lives of Jews locally, nationally, in Israel and worldwide

We are beginning to emerge from the greatest health, economic, and social upheaval in generations. Members of the Charlotte Jewish community experienced extraordinary hardships, and our beloved Jewish agencies endured unprecedented operational duress and financial vulnerability over the past year.

Our community responded as it always does in times of crisis — with generosity and commitment. Federation’s role has never been more vital. We mobilized community support from the early days of the pandemic to ensure the seamless continuation of programs, services, and funding. Despite the historic challenges, our work ethic and commitment to the community remained as steadfast as ever.
