Request COVID-19 Relief Support
For 117 years, the Jewish Federation of Omaha has built and sustained a strong and vibrant Jewish community in Omaha and beyond. Today this mission is more critical than ever. While this may be an uncertain and challenging time, what is certain is that – together – we will meet the challenge. We are taught “kol yisrael arevim zeh b’zeh” (We are each responsible for one another). Our shared values provide a roadmap for weathering this storm. We are here for you. Please let us know how we can help. Once you complete this form, someone from the appropriate Jewish Federation Agency will follow up with you.
If you would prefer, please call JFS directly at (402) 330-2024 during the allocated times (Monday- Thursday, 9am to noon).
