The North Louisiana Jewish Federation protects and enhances the well-being of Jews and Jewish communities in North Louisiana, the United States, Israel and around the world, striving to realize our core values of Ḥesed (caring and compassion), Torah (Jewish learning), Tikun Olam (repair of the world) and Tz'dakah (social justice). We act upon these values through philanthropic endeavors and collective leadership in partnership with national and international agencies.


Following the advice of the CDC and the Louisiana Department of Health, all in-person Federation events and meetings have been moved online, postponed, or cancelled until further notice.
