Whether you’re in Salt Lake City, Park City, or beyond, we provide wonderful opportunities to join others who share your interests and passions in the meaningful work of tikkun olam (repairing the world).

Our Current Initiatives

Join us in building and supporting Jewish life today and for generations to come. In upholding our Jewish responsibility, we fundraise, volunteer, and perform mitzvot together to make a profound impact locally, in Israel, and around the world.

As part of our commitment to global Jewish life, we have chosen to lend our support to World ORT’s Kfar Silver Youth Village–an at-risk school near Israel’s Gaza border.

We are committed to helping the small Jewish communities of Cordoba and Mendoza. Together, we can provide food, personal items, medicine, rent, and more.

Utah Community Shlicha

Our community shlicha provides educational programming for the entire community and strengthens our community’s connection to Israel.


Join us in our effort to preserve the memory of the Holocaust and bring attention to the alarming resurgence of antisemitism worldwide.

The Federation unites with our local and global communities to combat the rise of antisemitism along with other manifestations of hate.

The Utah Federation’s Life & Legacy Program assures that the Jewish community that means so much to you today will exist for future generations.


We’re supporting students by breaking down barriers, opening doors, and offering access to a variety of educational scholarships.

DE&I in Our Community

We welcome all Jewish individuals and families, whatever your background, knowledge, family make-up, or observance may be.

Your Impact in Ukraine

Thank you to all of our donors and volunteers who helped us raise money and supplies for the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. Together, we were able to donate over 650 pounds (14 suitcases) of desperately needed over-the-counter medications.
