Federation Shabbat

After a long hiatus, Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta is pleased to announce that on Friday, November 11 and Saturday, November 12, synagogues across metro Atlanta will observe Federation Shabbat! This weekend, congregants will learn how Federation and our Atlanta Jewish Foundation work to make life better for Jews (and all people) in Atlanta and around the world.

During this weekend’s services, congregations throughout Atlanta will hear about Federation’s partnerships with synagogues and the initiatives we work on together, such as:

  • Sending children to Jewish summer camps
  • Sponsoring teens, college students and adults on trips to Israel
  • Training pre-school and religious school professionals on best practices for innovation and inclusion in the classroom
  • Helping older adults stay independent
  • Teaching our teens and young adults to address antisemitism
  • Making our synagogues safe and secure for all

Joel Arogeti, Chair of the 2023 Community Campaign, says “Federation Shabbat is a celebration of the power of our community. For over 170 years, synagogues have served as the foundation of Jewish life in Atlanta. For over 120 years Federation has worked hand in hand with synagogue leadership to help build a growing and thriving Atlanta Jewish community.”
