Allocations and Impact

The Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas supports programs and services that have real impact on Jewish life each and every day, in Dallas, Israel and overseas. The combined generosity of thousands of donors to the Annual Campaign makes it possible for our community to support more than 85 local, national and international agencies and initiatives providing a lifeline that enhances and often saves Jewish lives.

The Jewish Federation considers local community-building needs and global shared responsibilities, and then allocates funds accordingly. The impact of this collective funding of the Jewish Federation allows us to constantly and consistently meet the needs of our Jewish family, no matter how far reaching, no matter where they may be. Because the Jewish Federation embraces the Jewish value of tikkun olam-repairing the world-a lifeline of services stretch from Dallas to Donetsk, from Richardson to Rehovot. 

The Jewish Federation, through our system of community partner agencies, is able to bring together every age and segment of our community to strengthen Jewish life. Our allocations provide meals and programs for seniors; quality Jewish education, scholarships and summer camps for children; Israel experiences for teens and young adults; counseling activities for families; and a variety of programming and initiatives that elevate our Jewish community.


For information about the allocations process, email Rabbi Mordechai Harris or call 214-615-5223.
