Our Mission


The United Jewish Federation of Utah builds and sustains a vibrant Jewish community that:

 

CARES for those in need,

 

DEEPENS engagement in Jewish life, and

 

STRENGTHENS bonds among Jews in Utah, Israel and throughout the world.


For more than 50 years, United Jewish Federation of Utah has served as our community's coordinating body for fundraising, planning, and communal services. Federation helps sustain and improve the lives of people in Utah, Israel, and around the world.

 

Through a network of partnering organizations, Federation builds and strengthens Jewish community; in Utah to our homeland, from the homebound to the homeless, from elderly Jews in Russia to North American teens discovering their birthright in Israel. Whether the task is reducing Jewish poverty and hunger, rescuing and resettling new immigrants, or spurring Jewish renaissance worldwide, federation is committed to seizing this moment in Jewish history to ensure the continuity of the Jewish people.

 

Federation is the heart and soul of North American Jewry's philanthropic and humanitarian activities. It embodies a 3,500-year-old tradition of caring that goes back to the giving of the Torah and sustains us in the bold pursuit of Jewish community, Jewish values and Jewish peoplehood. Federation is the people who care enough to want to perfect an imperfect world. Federation is the passion of commitment, where tzedakah and a sense of social justice can make a difference in someone's life.

 

Federation/UJC Community Campaign
The Annual Campaign is the lifeline of our Jewish community. Funds raised are distributed to local partnering organizations, as well as to United Jewish Communities, formerly UJA, which coordinates lifesaving humanitarian efforts for Jews in Israel and 60 countries around the world. The Campaign also offers many opportunities for community involvement through its outreach programs, including the Jewish Community Relations Council, Utah Maimonides Society (for physicians and dentists), Utah Cardozo Society (for Lawyers), Young Leadership (for those ages 25-45), Women’s Division and national affinity groups.
