Ready to learn more about The Jewish Federation and ways to connect with other Jews in our community?


We have you covered whether socially, culturally, educationally, actively, philanthropically.... Federation offers it all!

The Newcomers program, Shalom! You're Home! is designed to assist newcomers through their transition to the Sarasota-Manatee area, help them feel at home and welcome in our Jewish community, and encourage them to stay and settle long-term in South Florida. Our mid-sized community offers the benefits of a large city with the hospitality of a small town - with a multitude of dining and entertainment options as well as Jewish synagogues and organizations. 

The Jewish Federation would like to welcome you to the area! We hope you feel at home and become active members of the Sarasota-Manatee Jewish community.
