Your donations to the Annual Federation/UJA Campaign help provide a Jewish day school experience to underprivileged children around the world. Through World ORT, a Federation overseas partner, more than 300,000 students in 37 countries are trained in skills from farming to crafts, trades and, most recently, STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) education. Schools are in Israel, the former Soviet Union, Latin America and Europe and welcome families with any and all levels of Jewish observance.

Calling all young adults! Do you know what you’re doing this summer? How about a free trip to Israel with Taglit-Birthright Israel and Israel Outdoors? Registration for all Birthright trips is now open. Funded annually by Federation, Birthright brings young Jews closer to their history, identity and Israel. Young adults, ages 22-26, can join a special trip from June 14 to 25 specifically designed for Miami-Dade residents. For more information, click here or contact Nicole Erdfrocht at nerdfrocht@gmjf.org or 786.866.8448.
