Partnering with One Happy Camper, a program of the Foundation for Jewish Camps, and Jewish overnight camps across North America, Federation provides need-blind grants of up to $1,000 to families with first-time campers who attend public school or non-Jewish private school. If you’re interested, apply early as a limited number of grants are available. Federation is also accepting applications for our 2023 Jewish Overnight Summer Camp Scholarships for children ages 8-17 who attend public school, private school and Jewish day school or yeshiva and can demonstrate financial need.

In addition to speaking out against the rising tide of anti-Jewish hatred, many offered their support of the widely accepted International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism, As the American Jewish Committee's (AJC) Brian Siegal noted, "You can't combat what you don't define." Many leaders also committed to highlighting the positive contributions of Jewish people to the US during Jewish American Heritage Month, which occurs in May. Representation from Federation included Chair of the Board Ariel Bentata, Jewish Community Relations Council Chair Moj Khaghan Danial and President and CEO Jacob Solomon. Members of the ADL, AJC and the Consul General of Israel in Miami were also present.
