In Augusta, the Augusta Jewish Federation supports Jewish Family and Children’s Services that provides assistance to individuals and families in need as well as the Augusta Jewish Community Center that provides educational, cultural and social programs for the community. The Augusta Jewish Federation spearheaded efforts to create the Augusta Jewish Community Sunday School.
Federation also supports local and national organizations that provide a meeting place for Jewish students, fight anti-Semitism, feed the hungry and help families with terminally ill children.
At the same time, around the world, our agencies, the Jewish agency for Israel, the American Joint Distribution Committee and World ORT, are rescuing persecuted Jews and airlifting them to safety in Israel, as well as helping new immigrants and children at risk in Israel and helping to feed over 200,000 Jews in the Former Soviet Union.
