Building a vibrant & caring Jewish Buffalo.

About Us

For over a century, the Buffalo Jewish Federation has been at the center of the Jewish community. We are the safety net that enables Jews to fulfill our obligations to take care of each other.

Today, we are a vibrant hub of a community that celebrates Jewish life. With a deep commitment to strengthening our organizational and agency partners, creating space for innovation and experimentation, developing and growing sources of funding, and nurturing human capital, Federation inspires individuals to access Jewish tradition in powerful and transformative ways, rousing collective energy and collective action throughout our network of communities.

The Buffalo Jewish Federation is all of us — each corner of Jewish Buffalo — working together to repair the world and ensure a thriving and connected 21st Century Jewish Buffalo.

Our Vision

A robust, caring, and connected Jewish Buffalo where every Jew and their loved ones can access a welcoming and thriving network of communities, engage in meaningful collective Jewish experiences, and explore and own their personal Jewish journey.

Our Mission

Guided by Jewish values, Federation convenes, inspires, collaborates, leads and enriches the Jewish community locally, in Israel and around the world.
