Notes from the nonprofit

The Jewish Federation of Madison is a Functional Federation. There is no Jewish Community Center so the Federation develops the resources and creates the initiatives to support programming and activities that will enhance Jewish life. This includes programs run by the Federation such as the Hilde L. Mosse Gan HaYeled Preschool, Camp Shalom (the oldest day camp in the area founded in 1954), Midrasha Hebrew High School (part time), Family Education programming, Holiday programming, Outreach and more. The Federation also raises funds to support our beneficiary agencies which include Jewish Social Services, University of Wisconsin Hillel, UW Chabad, the Wisconsin Jewish Conference, and the Madison Jewish Community Day School.
Madison has a small yet wonderful Jewish community. The Federation strives to work closely with the other Jewish organizations as partners to build a strong and unified Jewish community in Madison, in Israel and around the world.
