International Division

International Division

Miami is the most diverse Jewish community in America. It truly is a melting pot, where a variety of languages, customs and practices thrive. Located in Federation’s North Dade office, the International Division is where all these cultures come together to share their Jewish customs, traditions and values.

Our International Division introduces you to new acquaintances from Latin America, Brazil, Russia, Israel, France and many other countries, while celebrating the cultural richness of Jewish life in Miami. Get involved and immediately begin volunteering to serve the needs of our Jewish brothers and sisters at home and abroad.

For more information, contact our International Division Director at InternationalDivision@JewishMiami.org.
