About Us

Jewish Nevada is made up of Jewish and social service organizations, synagogues and schools that provide valued services and programs to recipients in our community, in Israel and around the world. We are also made up of the local residents who support us – including lay leadership, volunteers, donors, professionals staff, rabbis, educators, event participants, students, and all those who contribute their time, skills or funds to a shared vision of our Jewish community and the world.

 

In essence, we are the caretakers - making sure that everyone is safe, fed, standing on their own, connected with their Jewish history and expressing their Jewish values.

 

We are the orchestrators - raising money and awareness through a myriad of events, programs, rallies and initiatives that create a brighter future for Judaism – and a better life for those in need.

 

We are community unifiers – inspiring, educating and galvanizing neighbors to come together for common causes and to build and sustain a strong, caring, vibrant Jewish community.

 

We are advocates - -for those less fortunate in our community as well as for Jewish issues around the world.  We collaborate with state senators, representatives and legislators on behalf of the expressed interests of the people and agencies we serve.

 

We are the organizers - initiating and overseeing committees, planning sessions and infrastructures that utilize the time, commitment and talents of local residents and volunteers.

Jewish Nevada is Your Center for Jewish Philanthropy and Community Development


 

Mission

Caring for our community

 

We are the organization in Nevada that is charged with the responsibility of assessing and addressing the needs of the entire community, making sure that every person in our Jewish community:

  • No matter where they fall along the spectrum of life JewishNevada is in the business of providing everyone with the opportunity to not just live a Jewish life, but to live life in a Jewish way…based on our values of learning, caring and social justice. 

 

This is the work of Jewish Nevada and this will be the goal to which we strive.
