The Jewish Federation of St. Joseph Valley serves the community in many ways. Whether through education, celebration or commemoration, the Federation regularly brings people together.
Through the year though, there are programs and events that take place on an annual basis as well. Every season brings celebrations, family events, and activities for every generation.
In the summer we soak up the sun and warm weather with outdoor activities like Camp Ideal and Nights at the Cove for a baseball game. The Israeli Scouts join us every year and put on a great show and the annual partnership meeting always brings us closer together.
The fall kicks off the Annual Campaign and the observance of High Holy Days. Sukkot and a trip to the Pumpkin patch bring families together to celebrate the fall harvest. The Sukkot lunch and dinner and the Spectrum Dance Company at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center liven things up and annual arrival of the new Shaliach is always exciting.
In the winter, we warm up inside with the Purim Carnival and a Hanukkah party. Fun winter activities keep the kids busy during the long winter days. Volunteer opportunities at the soup kitchen and the Passover baskets warm our hearts.
The spring season at the Federation is always a busy time. The Yom HaShoah Service at the courthouse is always touching and memorable. The annual Yom Ha'Atzmaut Lunch and Yom Ha'Atzmaut Celebration are fun for the entire family as we observe Israeli Independence day as a community. The season wraps up with the annual Jewish Film Festival at the DeBartolo Center for Performing Arts and with the Annual Meeting, which takes place at the Federation.
