Jewish Federation of Greater Harrisburg's
Comprehensive Campaign

Even in these uncertain times, we push forward.
Now is our opportunity to come together as a community to help grow, strengthen, and protect both the Greater Harrisburg Jewish Community and the global Jewish community.  Your dollars will help us support critical needs and grow the vibrant Jewish community we are nurturing here in Harrisburg. 


Our ongoing transition to the Alexander Grass Campus for Jewish Life is a perfect example of that work that must go on.  Now more than ever, we ask for your continued support in this work so we can further develop the new home that will inspire and ignite innovative programs - and become a new place to convene for our community.


When you help us kindle the flame you join us in:

  • Educating and Inspiring current and future Jewish leaders through our Adult Education, Camp, Theater, and Early Learning Center programs. 

  • Providing for our Seniors with much needed connectivity, programming, and kosher meals twice a week!

  • Serving as a Central Convener for Sports, Fitness, Arts and Culture, Adult and Youth programs, and important community gatherings at the very time when they are most needed.


With your generous support, we kindle the flame to:

  • Combat Antisemitism through education, advocacy, and interfaith outreach. 

  • Secure our community through physical infrastructure, cutting edge technology, and an investment in comprehensive security planning with our new Regional Security Advisor. 

  • Support our community agencies, day school, and our brothers and sisters in Israel through the allocation of much needed funds and resources.


Please join us in this year’s campaign by making your gift today!
