Welcome to the

Jewish Federation of San Diego 

At the hub of the Jewish community, the Jewish Federation of San Diego strategically engages donors, supporters and community partners in addressing and planning for current and future needs of the Jewish people locally, in Israel and around the world. We care for Jews in need everywhere, strengthen Jewish identity and community, and connect San Diego to Israel.

We Stand with Israel

Federation remains steadfast in our commitment to supporting Israel and her people. As Israel’s war with Hamas continues to unfold, San Diego is making an invaluable impact in the relief and recovery efforts, particularly in the communities hit hardest by the October 7 terrorist attacks – including our sister region of more than 25 years, Sha’ar HaNegev.

Federation addresses the most critical needs of those living in our Jewish community—during times of calm and times of crisis. We know that our greatest strength is our ability to act collectively.

  • Caring for Jews

    We are crafting & implementing a strategy to support Jews experiencing poverty. We pay special attention to local Holocaust survivors to ensure their days are spent with dignity.

  • Israel and Overseas

    Through Federation, San Diego Jewish community members of all ages can meet Israelis, experience the global Jewish culture, and travel to Jewish communities around the world.

  • Community Security

    Every community member deserves to engage and participate safely in Jewish communal life. Federation prioritizes and enhances Jewish San Diego’s safety, security, and preparedness.
