Building a vibrant & caring Jewish Buffalo.

About Us


For over a century, the Buffalo Jewish Federation has been at the center of building the Jewish community in Western New York, and today we are a vibrant hub that ensures a thriving and connected 21st Century Jewish Buffalo.  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 action throughout our network of communities.

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.
